Located at the end of Row 11, George Street to North Quay.

Known as the BREWERY TAP at some time before closure.

At the magistrates court on Monday 18th March 1867 it was heard that persons were in the house until four a.m. on Saturday 16th March. Constable O'Donnell had entered the house at one a.m. and found three men, one of whom was secreted in a back room. They were said to be lodgers. The policeman left the premises, but waited outside. Two of the said lodgers then exited the premises, but returned when they saw O'Donnell waiting outside.
A while later the constable heard a noise in the adjoining brothel and he saw three men within it, `tossing' for beer. He then witnessed landlord Hubbard carry beer to the brothel three times. Peeping through a keyhole, the officer witnessed the men drinking.
Christopher Hubbard was fined 20s and costs, or one month's hard labour for having his house open at illegal hours and to supplying beer to the adjoining brothel.

The following day, Mr. Hubbard was charged with assaulting his tenant, Sarah Smith, who ran the adjoining brothel. She had got into arrears with her rent and had been put into distress, which had led to words and eventually Christopher Hubbard struck her. He also was said to have beat her young son.
He was fined 10s and costs or fourteen day's hard labour.


Referred to Compensation 03.03.1926.

Licence renewal refused (as the BREWERY TAP) at the Principal Meeting for the Licensing (Consolidation) Act 1910, held 21st June 1926.

A notice was published 7th August 1926 informing any person due compensation from the closure of the premises, to make their claim by 30th August 1926.

Licence expired 05.01.1927
