As the VICTORIA TAVERN 1839.
Also listed as the QUEEN in 1867

Location given as Stump Cross in 1845.

Before the magistrates on Monday 3rd September 1860 it was heard that licensee John Nobbs had been found by Police-constable Olley to be standing near a pony and cart in a very drunk condition. Nobbs held up his whip as the constable approached and threatened to strike the officer. Arrested for being drunk and disorderly he was fined 40s and 10s 6d costs. It emerged that he had been before the magistrates on seven previous occasions, the first being in 1838 when he had stolen turnips and the last in 1850.

Stood next to the DUNCAN ARMS.

Demolished 1967 to allow the inner ring road flyover.

House identified by two separate correspondents as being known as the OLD VICTORIAN in the 1960's.
At some time before closure a manager by the name of Cursons was said to be running the house.
