Anchorsmith Tavern, 69 Gosford Street

These premises have been known by different names during their history:FROMTONAME
All I can say is, it seems an odd occupational name for such an inland city. In 1903 it was leased by Phillips and Marriott for 21 years for £100 per annum from James Warden of Walsgrave-on-Sowe. It was a home-brew pub at the time as malt was supplied at the usual terms as for other tenants and the tenant was to brew half of his ale. A bushel produced 3 barrels of ale. In 1907 the pub was closed and compensation paid to the owner. See Beerhouse, Gosford Street, Miles. Gosford St 1912 Fry
