Full licence granted Tuesday 25th August 1868 to William Moy.

The Mortgagees of the Bankrupt Mr. George J. Bell instructed the Sale by Auction, during June 1868, of the Recently Erected Freehold Property comprising Five substantially built Dwelling-houses and the Alexandra Public House. Two of the Dwellings were unoccupied.

On Saturday 23rd October 1886 Alexander Trimble of Clifton street was accused of assaulting landlady Elizabeth Eastgate. An argument had arisen over payment of a pane of glass, broken by Trimble on a previous occasion. When he became abusive he was asked to leave and as Mrs. Eastgate held the door open, he struck her in the face. Mr. Eastgate was called and Trimble struck out over the bar, landing a punch to the landlord's chest. Mr. Eastgate then took up a `life-preserver', a 2ft 6in stick and hit Trimble two or three times about the head.
For the assault on Mrs. Eastgate Trimble was fined 10s with costs of 8s.
The counter-charge of an assault upon Mr. Trimble by Mr. Eastgate was adjourned for a week since the nature of injuries were considered so serious that the Bench thought that they could not deal with the matter until Mr. Trimble was out of danger.

Damaged by enemy action 27/29.04.1942.
