Building    To 1888

Bull and Mouth Inn

A coaching inn. From British History: "Burnt in the {1666 Great} Fire and rebuilt. Rebuilt about 1830-1 as the Queen's Hotel. Demolished 1887. The inn is said to have derived its name from the sign of the Boulogne mouth or harbour (captured by Henry VIII}, of which the present form is a corruption. The site is now occupied by some of the new General Post Office Buildings, erected 1890-5."
