This pub stood at the corner of Buckingham Row and Brewer’s Row (today’s Buckingham Gate and Spenser Street). The address was 13 Buckingham Row in 1871 census and earlier; At 61 Buckingham Gate by 1910. The house was built in the early 1800s, but I do not know when it became a pub. It survived as a pub until around 1960. ***
