Notes: Renamed as the "Oxford and Cambridge" in 1789, as the "Cambridge Stores" in 1811, and as the "Newman Street Tavern" in 2012. It was primarily a restaurant as "Newman Street Tavern", and has since become just a restaurant. The directories list it as the "Cambridge coffee house" in 1841 and 1856, so it may not have fully been a pub for a period.
