Pulled down circa 1856 "to make a much-desired public improvement in that locality", which included the laying out of Lord Street. The landlord, Mr. Holt, was given £100 compensation although his attempt to transfer his licence to a building on Market Walk (built on the site of the demolished Grey Hound Inn) was rejected by magistrates in December 1856 who suggested that he would be better off applying for the licence of the then vacant Rose and Crown Hotel on Kirkgate.[1]
