Half Moon, 88 Gracechurch street, London EC3

St Peter Cornhill index

This pub was present by 1761, and started life as the very long-established Half Moon Tavern. This also had a 'Tap' bar which is listed separately in at least one old Directory. In 1881 the pub was rebuilt, and now the New Moon sometime after 1944.  ***

It is likely that the Half Moon was built by the Lee family.
