These premises have been known by different names during their history:FROMTONAME
18221829GREYHOUND
18351856QUEENS HEAD
There are a number of possible explanations of this name: a) a famous mail coach which travelled between London and Birmingham; b) a heraldic reference to the Dukes of Newcastle; c) the greyhound was formerly used in the chase but is now mainly associated with greyhound racing. This pub is thought to have existed in 1800. It is thought to have become the QUEENS HEAD, Gosford Street. Gosford St 1912 Fry
