Notes: Renamed as "London Cocktail Cub" in c2017. The address of the building and pub formerly on the site used to be 60 King William Street (EC4R 9AA), prior to that site's demolition in c1991. Before rebuilding in c1884, the "Monument Tavern" was 15m to the east on the other side of the intersection (at 48 Fish Street Hill or 1 Eastcheap). An additional confusion is that these two addresses were listed separately before the mid-C19 (though they may have been the same building): The 48 Fish St Hill address was known as the "Norfolk Hotel" (see separate entry, earlier the "Monument Hotel"), while 1 Eastcheap (or 1 Little Eastcheap) was the "Monument Tavern". The name is now used by the pub to the south at 18 Fish St Hill (as the "Monument", see separate entry).
