This was built (date unrecorded) as a private house and converted into an inn in 1736, according to the Listed Buildings Register.

The building number is from the modern numbering scheme for this street; we record older pubs as being at no. 13 but they are known to have stood further west. The numbers are assumed to have been changed to take account of the many demolitions along Tacket Street.

It probably reopened as a new pub for a short period about 1900.
