An earlier map of 1821 shows the area to be a vacant plot of land, so the building were erected between 1821 and 1826 when I have found the first reference to the building as a public house.

This pub changed name some time after 1883 to the "Randolf Hotel." Unfortunately later to be demolished when the kink in the road was straightened for the new Casino and medical centre to be built opposite.
