Tabard Inn

Set up by an abbot from Winchester to give his brethren somewhere to stay in London and to provide accomodation to pilgrims on their way to Canterbury, in particular Chaucer's pilgrims, who set off from here in April 1386.

Destroyed by a major fire in 1669, rebuilt as the Talbot which became a well-known coaching inn. The railways took its trade away and it was converted to storage before being demolished.
