An inn in the 15th century.
Possibly then named the PILGRIM'S INN
Present building probably dates from 17thC.

James I is said to have entertained a lady friend here - her name said to be Anne..

A sale of furniture took place here 24th November 1778.

On Thursday 20th January 1870 a fire was discovered in a beam running close to the chimney. It had apparently been smouldering for several days and a serious conflagration was avoided,. Mr. Easto was however still suffering from the damage three days later.

On Wednesday 28th September 1870, members of the Early Closing Cricket Club partook of a supper here. Mr. & Mrs Easto provided a good supper and gave satisfaction to their guests.
