On Friday 17th April 1903 Horace Freestone applied for the licence to be transferred from William Porter. For the magistrates, Lord Lindley found fault with the documentation presented and refused the application. The Magistrate's Clerk said that under the circumstances, Mr. Freestone could not continue drawing beer. The applicant was then granted a temporary licence, valid for two weeks.

Damaged by enemy action 04.10.1944
A V2 rocket (or parts of one) landed in the bedroom but failed to explode !
It was removed by a combination of British & American servicemen after several anxious days.

88 barrels of beer sold in the final year of trading.
Closed as being uneconomic.
