Situated in the High Street below the Bargate and within the old walled town of Southampton lies one of the oldest inns in the city

The cellar is of Norman vintage dating back to the 12th century, but parts of the upper structure of the Inn, which has been considerably altered, are of Tudor origin.

The most attractive part of the Inn's interior decor is the fine half timbered apartment known as Henry V's 'Court Room'.
This was used for the trail of Richard, Earl of Cambridge, Lord Scrope of Masham and Sir Thomas Grey of Heton, all of whom conspired against the life and crown of Henry V in 1415, immediately prior to Henry's departure from Southampton to Agincourt.

The trail was a famous landmark in English history.
The conspirators were found guilty of high treason, condemned to death and summarily executed outside the Bargate. A rubbing from the stone describing the execution can be seen in the 'Court Room'.
