Roebuck

Status: Closed and demolished
Address: Turnmill Street, EC1M (streetmap) (osm) (gmap) (bingmap) (streetview)
Note: The location on these maps is approximate.
Dates open: [1750]-[1793]
Notes: Also known as the "Roebuck and French Horn" apparently, as this name occasionally shows up in Old Bailey criminal case records. Although numbered as 63 Turnmill Street in a 1791 Sun Fire Office insurance record (which would place it on the east of the street near Clerkenwell Green), Horwood's 1799 map marks a Roe Buck Court leading off the west side further to the south, presumably where the pub stood. This would also match a 1793 Old Bailey case in which the publican states that the pub is "in the middle of Turnmill Street" and mentions a Roe Buck Alley leading off it.
