The pub had closed in 1971 and was now (2017) being used as a pizza takeaway, although in the above photo it was being used as a flower shop.

I have also heard this referred to as the "Red Lion and Distillery."

Not sure if this is from the same pub or another called the "Wheatsheaf" but a coin has been documented from 1658 and the name John Couch. The address Butt Lane has also been used around 1800.
