The building probably dates from the 17th century, but has been much altered. It has been converted into several retail units, having stood empty for several years.
Since about the end of 2015, a small bar called the Comfortable Cow has been established in one part of the building.
The pub is shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
