This pub stood somewhere under the present Buttermarket Centre in Market Lane.

The Borough Police licensed premises register (1903-1923) shows that a beat bobby would have walked past it between the Grand Hotel and the Falcon (now Bowman's). Market Lane is also a strong candidate because apparently there was an old gaol in the area.
