14-JUN-00 The Duke of Clarence Public House


Public house, c1820. General design almost certainly by William Mountague, surveyor to the City of London. Brick with painted stucco dressings and parapeted roof with brick stacks. Canted plan with concave 4-window front to St. George's Circus, a single-window front to Borough Road and a 3-window front to London Road. 4 storeys and basement. First floor 1/1 and 2/2 sashes to St. George's Circus with 3/3 sashes on both floors over, 1/1 sash with 3/3 sashes over to Borough road and, to London Road, 1/1 sashes and 3/3 sashes or blanked windows over. To ground floor a continuous late C19 pub front with Corinthian pilasters and entablature, moulded window frames and panelled doors.
INTERIOR: Ground floor mainly opened up but some late C19 bar fittings still in situ. 2 original stick baluster staircases with turned columnar newel posts rising up to 3rd floor. Veined white marble chimney-piece in 1st floor room and some door and window surrounds as well as boarded chimney-pieces in rooms on upper floors. This public house, first leased to John Panton, victualler, in 1820, and still in use as a pub, forms a significant group with the Obelisk in St. George's Circus (qv), Nos. 123-131 London Road (qv) and 113-119 Borough Road (qv) both adjoining, and the former Presbyterian Chapel (qv) and the St.George the Martyr Library (qv), both also in Borough Road.
