I believe that this pub has now been erased from the map.

Not just closed, but due to be demolished as the land is worth more that the building.

I noticed yesterday that this pub is now closed and boarded up. Another one bites the dust?

In the 1860s and early 1870s this pub was known as the Two Brothers.

The United Services does not appear in the 1872 licensing records, but was listed in an 1875 directory when it's name was probably meant to reflect the Navy, Army and Royal Marines, all of whom had barracks or bases locally. The Pub Sign today also includes an RAF pilot.
