The location of St Andrew's Lane is unknown; it doesn't appear on any modern maps and no other reference to it can be found.

The chequerboard as a pub sign may have its origins from Roman taverns when a board game like draughts was often advertised and played. It may also be an ancient sign to indicate the landlord was a money-lender or could offer secure storage for a travellers valuables.
