The brewery was eventually taken over by another brewing company, Hoare and Co., before being demolished. The Royal Festival Hall now stands in its place. The only trace of the original brewery is the large lion visible on the top of the building, made of artificial Coade stone. It now stands on the South Bank at the east end of Westminster Bridge.
Francis Calcraft Turner (1782–1846) was an English artist dealing predominantly in sporting scenes.
