Opened in 1950, with a license from the closing Malt House, at which time it was called "The Maidenhall Inn". By 1960, when the Elephant & Castle's license was transferred (perhaps a full license replacing a beerhouse one?) it had become known as "The Maidenhall". The "Smock" name seems to have appeared fairly soon after this.
The original license was only a beerhouse license; the second license transfer provided a full license.
Recent reports suggest Real Ale is no longer available here; if you know differently, please let us know.
