It isn't entirely clear how much of the building pictured was the pub. It may just have been the cream-coloured section to the left of our photo, it may have been the longer grey section or it may have been the whole building.

The license was allowed to expire on August 19th, 1911 as part of a scheme to reduce the number of alcohol licenses. The building is now residential.

A chaise literally means chair and usually is an old reference to people who could afford their own carriage and horses.
