The Britannia, Eastborough, had been called that since the 1700s.

Volunteers at the museum spent three months looking through their archive to research the history of pubs, past and present, in the Old Town. Their efforts have resulted in a remarkable collection of pictures portraying pubs that have now gone and the previous looks, and names, of those that have survived.

The Dolphin, Eastborough, another long established pub now gone.
The Three Mariners on Quay Street, with many a story of smuggling and ghosts, was in shipbuilding days called the Block Makers Arms.
The Sheffield Arms was on Foreshore Road at the bottom of Blands Cliff, now part of the area that has been cleared by the demolition of the Futurist.
Ye Old Brass Tap was on present-day Princess Square at the site of the old Butter Cross.
The Scarborough Castle on Longwestgate was known by the locals as the Shalla Watter.
Denmark Arms was reputed to be the smallest pub in England.
