Fox Under the Hill
Loretta reports:

Continuing my nerdy history tidbits about The Last Hellion*—

The characters appear in a number of London eating and drinking establishments, most of which I discovered in the works of Charles Dickens. One interesting place is the Fox Under the Hill. This tavern (not to be confused with others of the same name) was at No. 75 in the Strand, and vanished when the Victoria Embankment was built.
