Located on the SE corner of Row 60 Howard Street to King Street.

Following an argument with his wife, Louisa, Thomas Cosgrove called the police and wanted P.C. Woods to take her into custody.
Woods declined, and advised both parties to get inside the house.
Shortly afterwards Cosgrove, who had been drinking,  re-emerged and acted in a violent and noisy manner, attracting a large crowd.
Before the magistrates on Monday 10th July 1854 and accused of disorderly conduct,  it was heard that Cosgrove had called P.C. Woods a great blackguard and had elbowed and pushed him along the causeway. This was supported by P. C. Fiske.
Arguing that he had not been drunk, his representative suggested he remain silent or make the matter worse.
Instructed to put £1 into the poor box or face serious charges, this he did, observing it was very well for the magistrates to hear a one sided case.

On Friday 4th September 1863, landlord Isaac Spencer was accused of permitting disorderly conduct in his house. Owing to the divided opinion of the magistrates the case was dismissed.

At the following licensing sessions, September 1863, this house was described by one of the magistrates a really a brothel of the very foulest description. The application to transfer the licence from Isaac Spencer to Leonard Ostler was refused.
