Reported to be a beerhouse in May 1867.

On Saturday 3rd September 1887 Thomas Leek and James Jermy, labourers, entered the public house at about 5:30 pm. They had not been in the house long when Mrs. Sarah Jermy entered and threw the baby she was carrying at her husband. Upon being told by the licensee James Barker, not to hurt the baby, Mrs. Jermy grabbed a spittoon and threw it at his head. Whilst being ejected from the house, Mr. Jermy used very bad language and pulled his whiskers and tore some hairs out. Both Mr. Jermy and Leek then joined in the assault but were eventually put out of the house. Mrs Jermy returned and broke a window.
On Wednesday 6th September it was heard that the licensee's wife was also assaulted by having been struck a violent blow to the face and having some of her hair pulled out by the roots. James Barker junior, son of the licensee, who had come to the assistance of his father, had been knocked down twice. He had been attacked by Leek and a man named Henry Read.
Leek was fined 12s 6d and costs or 21 days' imprisonment with hard labour; Read 10s and costs or 14 days' imprisonment with hard labour; Jermy 10s and costs or similar imprisonment; and Mrs. Jermy 2s 6d and costs.
