5/40 Nos 2 & 2A
8/40 (Mermaid Hotel)


Inn, with shop; both known to have existed by 1770. Has stone ashlar with stone
slated roof between coped gables with brick chimney stacks (renewals) at each
end. Apparently built at the same time as Nos 1A & 1B, (qv). Wide opening on
left-hand side with bolection moulded round trefoil arch with moulded imposts
and return of moulding down jambs as Quasi-columns onto a simple plinth. The old
gate survives. To the right a C20 shopfront. Above the arch a triple window with
plain surround and impost blocks - the centre 9-pane sash has a round trefoil
arched head with non-radial toplight and the side 6-pane sashes have depressed
ogee arches: to the right two 8-pane sashes in simple architraves; above a
cornice with hidden gutters behind. Inside the archway a porch with traces of
brick nogging to a timber stud partition. The interior much altered at both
floor levels, but some original doors and panelling remain, and the cellars not
greatly changed. There are early C20 extensions to the rear yard, which has a
separate entrance to Princes Street. Note the plates proclaiming "Member of the
Licensed Victuallers Defence League of England and Wales" on both entrance
gates. (Mortgage deed of 1770 in frame just inside main entrance).
