The Whitehouse is a Grade II listed building in Duke Street, Liverpool, England.[1] The side of the building had an image of a giant rat holding a marker pen by graffiti artist Banksy.[2][3] In February 2010, the pub sold for £114,000 at auction,[4] but has since been turned into a bar and restaurant called Yardbird, following the removal and sale of the rat mural.[5]
