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. Old maps suggest the pub filled the entire building in our photo.

The Chaise & Pair is shown, though not named, on this old OS map from about the start of the 20th century (larger map). It's named on other old maps.
