The Haymarket was a traditional local name for the junction between Hanover Buildings, Houndwell Place and Palmerston Road. It is unlikely that there was ever a market here, rather the name possibly derived from the nearby granary belonging to J T Glasspool, whose wagons were loaded and unloaded in this area.
This inn formerly stood on the west side of the Strand (now Queen’s Way) at the junction with Hanover Buildings, and was originally named the Yeoman's Inn. It was possibly renamed from the adjoining area traditionally known as the Haymarket (see above).
