I am informed that the pub was in the vicinity of Chatham Hill and Hards Town, and the pub of 1841 was described as a pub come lodging house.

Next door to the pub was a jewellers.

Tony Smith says the following:- "It looks like this pub was renamed at sometime or rebuilt as the "Crown and Anchor" as old maps show this pub occupying the same footprint as the "Malt Shovel." Modern numbering locates this at 397 High Street.

 

From the South Eastern Gazette, Tuesday 26 October, 1841.
