Greyhound

Status: Closed and demolished
Address: Queen Street, SE1 (streetmap) (osm) (gmap) (bingmap) (streetview)
Note: The location on these maps is approximate.
London borough: Southwark
Former address: [now Union Street]
Historical parish: Southwark St Saviour
Dates open: [1695]-[1809]
Owner: Combe and Co. (former)
Notes: Location on the map is a guess. This is marked as "Greyhound Inn" on Rocque's map of 1746, as a yard running between Borough High Street and Queen Street (later renamed as part of Union Street), forming the eastern stretch of Union Street. An 1809 Sun Fire Office insurance record notes it is on the south side of Queen Street in the parish of Southwark St Saviour, meaning it was west of the parish boundary, which ran just alongside where I have marked it on the map.
