Robertson Street Congregational Church Institute was designed by Vernon and situated in Priory Street on the site of a timber yard.

It was operational as a church institute and meeting rooms from around 1867 until circa 1962 when it changed hands to become the Priory Billiards Club. It later was converted to become the Penguin Link Bingo Club in 1972, the Penguin Cinema in 1974 with a nightclub Dennies Nightclub in the basement. The Penguin Snooker Club occupied an upper floor of the property.

The building was eventually demolished in 2007.
