opened about 1861

Poplar Hill

grid reference TM 050 577 (approximate location)

The pub was owned by Catchpole & Son from 1866 until its closure in 1913.

The former Volunteers was demolished to allow an extension to the adjacent Hubbard's butchers' shop in 1980. That was itself demolished in the 1990s and has been replaced by modern housing.
