First mentioned as a Public house in Robert Winter's will / inventory dated 1780.

S&P business report, prepared June 1969 for Watney Mann recommended immediate closure.
`Trade is poor - No bathroom and still has earth closets.'

The Killengrey family were reported to have been at the house for 85 years when it was closed 1977 and they were obliged to leave.

The house was subsequently refurbished and reopened as a freehouse

May 2015 - With many thanks to Lesley Day for early licensees and those after 1978.
