Cambrian Stores / Leicester, 44 Glasshouse Street, St James, Westminster W1

Westminster St James index

It stands at the corner of Glasshouse Street and Warwick Street, and historically addressed as 50 Warwick Street, and also at 44 Glasshouse Street, certainly by 1910. The Pub was first licensed in 1725 as the Harp, later becoming the Harp & Crown before being re-named the Cambrian Stores. It was re-built in 1892 and by 1934 (probably earlier) the pub had again been renamed, this time the Leicester Arms - the name which remains in use today. **
