Address as Blackfriars Road in 1852, St. Johns Terrace in 1863.
( St Johns Terrace carries on from the eastern end of Blackfriars Road. )

At the Annual Licensing Day, Monday 6th September 1852, the magistrates Platten, Wales and Pitcher sat for the purpose of issuing new licenses. That of the Britannia beerhouse was a new application. Magistrates Platten and Wales were of the opinion that there were already too many licenses. Mr Pitcher was of the opinion that granting of licenses increased the value of the property and led to houses being sold at inflated prices with the owner of the licence then immediately applying for a fresh one for a neighbouring house. The application was refused.
( One hundred and forty-six licenses were renewed ).
