The local Conservative Association maintained and used the bowling green.

Suffered in the floods of 1953, the water reaching the tops of the bar tables and causing much damage to the ground floor.

Said to be the only pub outside the town centre to hold an extended 4:00pm Market licence.

Closed 1967 and licence surrendered.
Reason for closure was that ``a superior Bullards house was nearby''.

111 7/8 barrels of beer sold in the final year of trading.
