The Portrack Hotel in truth is located on Portrack Lane at the corner of what is now St. Ann’s Terrace. In the 1890’s it was on the corner of Portrack lane and a clay pit. A few yards to east of the pit was Portrack Road. At that time Portrack lane was known as Portrack Lane East. I have bee trying to make some sense of the odd house numbering system in Portrack Lane and suspect that the date of the pubs construction/opening might throw some light on the subject. Does anyone know when it was built?
