Rory Kehoe tells me there was a "Prince of Wales Head" previous to 1807 in Dover Street that may have changed name to the "Robin Hood and Little John" and by 1807 had become the "Malt Shovel," which in turn changed to the "Brewers' Delight" in 1834 and then the "Beehive" in 1837.

Rory Kehoe says the following:- On 8th December 1834 the "Malt Shovel" was purchased by George Ash of the Dane John Brewery. The vendors were William and Mary Brett and John Gilbey. By 1838 the licensee, Henry Wraight, had change the name from the "Malt Shovel" to the "Brewer's Delight" and by 1847 had moved his business and pub name to Broad Street.
