An attempt was made to burn the hotel down in April 1866:

Last night smoke was seen to issue from the Welsh Harp Hotel, Lydiard-street, and on forcing an entrance some gentlemen found a bundle of straw placed under the stairs, and on fire. Two persons, a man and a child, were in the house. It is affirmed on all sides that it was an attempt on the part of the outgoing tenant to burn the place to spite the owners, Messrs Smith and Wynne.[1]
