‘Anderton's Hotel’ (No. 164, north side) occupies the site of a house given, as Mr. Noble says, in 1405, to the Goldsmiths' Company, under the singular title of ‘The Horn in the Hoop,’ probably at that time a tavern.

In the reign of King James I. the ‘Horn’ is described as ‘between the 'Red Lion,' over against Serjeants' Inn, and Three-legged Alley.’”
