In 1858 the Landlord was Henry Beams, by 1878 the Landlord was John Jakeway. I believe the patrons of this establishment were quite cosmopolitan including women of ill repute and pickpockets, like most of the pubs in this area at that time. The pub was demolished in the early 1880s. This was to widen Ambrose Street, for easier access to the nearby railway station. Until this time Ambrose Street was very narrow.
