Picture source: Movement80

The Leicester was situated  at the north-west corner of New Coventry Street at the junction with Wardour Street. It was erected in 18867 for Charles Best and Company and demolished in 1927 for the expansion of Stagg and Russell's ladies' department store. The licence was transferred to The Cambrian Stores, Glasshouse Street, Soho (formerly The Harp & Crown) which was renamed The Leicester Arms and is still extant.
