Landlady Mary Lewis was mentioned in a case of assault.
On Saturday 20th December 1862, at about half-past eleven, John Waller returned to the GARDENERS ARMS, where he was living and assaulted John Pull.
Both Mary Lewis and servant Martha Betts denied that any assault had occurred.
The Magistrates severely censured Waller since he was a married man and it was most disgraceful that he was cohabiting with this woman ( Mary Lewis) and fined him 10s and costs or in default, twenty-one day's hard labour.
Police-constable Giles, who had refused to come to the assistance of Pull, had previously been asked to resign, but had been re-appointed, however he was suspended as a result of the case.

Stood on the corner of Waterloo Road and Starling Road.

Damaged by enemy action 27/29.04.1942.

Demolished after 1969 closure.
