How interesting. Although the thread has been up for many years, I've not seen it until now.

I remember the Tree Tuns as the student union bar at the LSE (London School of Economics ) when I was there in the 1960s . I think it's still there. It's not the same one but I'm wondering if it was named after the one in Fetters Lane.  It's not all that far away.

It was named after the bombed out one. The bombed out on had been there for a very longtime. I do believe that side of the street was the side that survived the great fire of London, and the Tunns was built a little after restoration began on the area. We know it had a standard Georgian frontage of no particular distinction (having replaced an older fire-survived building)and served the published houses around. At no. 23 was Robson and Levy (Carlyle's Printers) who print works extended into behind the Tunns.
