One of the very few pubs to have survived in the eastern end of Guildford. It is said to have its origins as a 17th century coaching inn. Interestingly the Victoria County History (Surrey, Vol III, 1911) says: "The newel staircase and the interior suggest a date as old as the 15th century. There is some old panelling, and the exterior bears the date 1615". So quite possibly it was rebuilt around 1615 and incorporated parts of an earlier building.
