Traced from between 1858 and 1938 at present, but looking at the fact that it appears the hanging sign brackets are still on the building, I would suggest it was still a pub until recently.

Latest information received December 2015 says the building is now being used as a funeral parlour, but in 2002 was Hinges and Brackets, hardware store.
