Seen here in 1971, the Gaythorn was named after the area of town near the bottom end of Deansgate around the station.  Known as the Gaythorn Tavern at one time and going further back it was the Gaythorn Vaults in 1849 [1].  It stood at the junction of Albion Street and Hewitt Street and was on this side of Albion Street, the licensee being William Edge according to the Slater's Directory extract on the reverse of the map [1].
