Named the KINGS ARMS 1767 - 1822
but found as the CROWN in 1828.
By 1836 the house was named the PIG & WHISTLE.

Charles Loynes had taken over in 1839 and was running it as a hotel by 1845. It was known as the CROWN & ANCHOR from that time.

On Monday 13th October 1902 the temporary transfer of the licence to Richard Bowis was granted. The applicant had previously been barman at the BATH HOTEL.
The Superintendant had no objections as he had only just heard of the proposal, but by the time of the full transfer he would say if there were any objections to be raised.
One of the Bench asked the Superintendant to find out how far the Crown & Anchor was from other licensed houses because it thought that they were `as thick as grass' in the area. It was his opinion that there was no necessity to continue with the licence.
