In 1869-70 the pub was part of a consortium who were advertising their goods of selling tea in response to grocers' selling beer and wine. (Click for further details.) I believe this was incorrectly given the title of the "Railway Hotel" in the linked advert.

Some time between 2009 and 2019 the pub changed name to the "Fountain of Ale."

 

As the information is found or sent to me, including photographs, it will be shown here.

Thanks for your co-operation.
