New London Tavern.

This is an extensive building; the front is covered with stucco, and it has a small portico, above which are the arms of the City of London. The principal room, which is on the floor, is considerably wider than the above described, though not quite so long; it is fitted up in the handsomest manner, the ceiling being ornamented with gilt lyres and wreaths, and on the east side, is a music gallery with an elliptical front; at each end of the room, are false windows filled with looking-glasses, which has an excellent effect. From the ceiling depend small but neat chandeliers. On the other floors are several handsome rooms, and the cellars are the most capacious of any tavern in London: they consist of tiers, above the other, and are the foundation of a noble house, erected by Sir C. Wren. The present proprietors are Messrs. Peacock and Co.

On the same side of , more northerly, is

153

Crosbysquare, the approach to which is under a gateway. Here is of the finest specimens of early domestic architecture in London.
