The premises probably started life as a bake-house but by 1882 was serving ale, but operating as a beer house until at least 1902.

Originally a Fremlins house this was sold to Shepherd Neame in 1972.

February 2019 I am informed that the licensee has closed the pub and is applying for planning consent for 2 flats.

April 2019 I am informed that the application was rejected by the Council.
