In February 1908 the license of the Leopard Inn was objected to as ‘not being required to meet the wants of the neighbourhood’.  At the time it was tied to Arnold Perrett & Co. Ltd., Wickwar Brewery. It survived for many decades after the recommendation for closure but was eventually demolished. The Old Pilot Inn, a few yards away, was closed in 1909. The address is given as 7 Pilot Terrace in 1906. 200 Southgate Street in 1957 reference.
