Old Boars Head, Lower King Street

Former location of Old Boars Head, Lower King Street (King Street West). (c) googlemaps.

Next door to Mario Balotelli's second home, San Carlo (the old Maxwells / King's), on King Street West (formerly Lower King Street), is King's House, home to the Berrymans Lace Mawer legal firm.  In the mid-1800s, before this was built, sat the Old Bears Head.  Pork Lane was to the rear and separating the Weights and Measures Office (where San Carlo is)  from the Old Boars Head was the tiny Court Lane [1].
