This property was rebuilt at some time before 1791 with a modest Georgian brick front. It may not have been a public house at that time. Deeds refer to this building from 1518 and it was earlier called the KINGS ARMS. Was the name changed with the accesssion of Victoria?
In 1865 it was part of the estate of Bablake School for which Thomas Winn paid £38 per annum. In 1885 it was purchased by Matterson, Huxley and Watson for £1,250. In 1899 Phillips and Marriott leased it for one year from Mattersons for £100 per annum with an option to renew for a further 7 years. This option they took up and they renewed for another 7 years in 1906. However, in 1913 the lease was removed to Mitchells and Butlers. In 1915 the pub closed.
