This pub dates from 1704 and was rebuilt in 1890 at the same address. The 1847 license transfer refers to the Black Lion, Craven Hill, Paddington. The address becomes 123 Bayswater Road between 1938 and 1944, the earlier address is at 22 Bayswater Terrace, Bayswater Road before complete renumbering.  In 2014 it was sold to developers for 27 million! *** The early directory in 1833 refers to Elkins row, Bayswater.
