78 The Bayle
Formerly the "Druid's Arms" this house was rebuilt in 1879 and renamed by 1881.
Described as a small bay-windowed tavern, this was situated opposite the Herald newspaper offices and frequented by their staff.
1913 saw the end of this as a public house when the justices refused the renew the licence and according to C. H. Bishop, the premises became a religious bookshop.
