Queen's Arms
   In Ludgate Street, in parish of St. Martins, in Farringdon Ward Within. Afterwards known as the "Dogge or Talbott." Burnt in the Fire of London. Rebuilt and called the" Old Dog "until 1714 or later, and afterwards in 1834" The Sun."
   The old house seems to have contained other taverns in it: Below stairs was "The Phoenix," upstairs "The Pomegranate," " King's Arms," " King's Head," " Dolphin," Swanne," and " Spread Eagle." Possibly the names were used merely to distinguish the several apartments in the house. But it seems to be a curious and uncommon practice (N. and Q. 8th S. XI. p.204).
