Once a coaching inn, the front room was used as a restaurant, with a bar and patio to the rear.

The pub has closed and developers want to demolish it and replace it with homes. There have been local protests against this plan, but permission was granted in November 2016. However, when visited in July 2019, it was observed that the building was still standing and boarded-up.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
