Plaster and wallpaper fragments indicate that this was once inhabited, the roof space is floored with wide planks. Noted as having jowled post supporting the collar of an interrupted tie beam roof. HISTORICAL NOTE: c1350 the site was used as a burial ground for victims of the Black Death. Before the Reformation it formed part of the Blackfriar's orchard, then it came into the city's ownership. In 1646 the land was leased from the city by Robert Sterrop, Mayor who built a dwelling on the site, the earliest datable brick house in the city (Hughes) which, in 1678, had 8 hearths; much of the fabric of this house is intact and there was probably a rear wing. About 1800 the pub was bought by the landlord of The Horn and Trumpet (then opposite) who brought the name with him. Above right entrance to main facade a huge 6-sided carriage lamp, remade in 1992 imitation of the lost original. Information supplied by Marston's Brewery. Occupies a prominent corner site at the junction of Angel Street and Angel Place, forming a good group with the Corn Exchange, Angel Street, No.23 Angel Place and Former Congregational Church (now Tramps Discotheque), Angel Place (qqv).
