Are you wondering what once went on in this cosy little place you are now enjoying some fine food and a drink or two? Well, back in the day, 1889 to be exact, this building was commissioned by John Dynon to the architect William Pitt (hence the name ‘Dynon’s Buildings’). Mr Dynon leased the buildings out to various companies including Ironmongers, Printers, Leatherworkers, and interestingly enough - a human hair importer!
The building’s style is Victorian, particularly in the façade’s parapet which has loose references to 13th Century southern Italian architecture. Back in the day, if we had been around, you would be sitting on wooden benches, being waited on by busty wenches, swigging mugs of ale and feasting on crusty bread with chunks of fresh meat. Rather be here in the ‘naughties’ sipping on a martini, wouldn’t you?
