Summerland Tavern This name is a reference to the common lands that once occupied the site. See the Broomfield Tavern. On 15th December 1837, this pub was advertised for sale with Mr. Edwards as tenant. In 1935 it was a Flowers pub. In 1981, whilst owned by Whitbread Flowers, it was renamed the FOB WATCH and in 1994 reverted to the SUMMERLAN TAVERN again.Then in 1999 it became the BUTTS RETREAT. Note the surprisingly few licensees in a century.
