At the time of writing (2018) this inn has been in business for an incredible period of over 545 years. It started out in the 1220's as a hospital (almshouse) initially for workers building the adjacent stone bridge over the River Thames. It was dedicated to St. John the Baptist and part of the Augustinian Lechlade Priory, which no longer survives. The priory was dissolved in 1472 by King Edward IV but the almshouse continued as an inn known as "Ye Sygne of St. John Baptist Head". In 1704 it was renamed "The Trout Inn".

The present building is believed to contain parts dating from the 13th century but much is late medieval, with 18th century and later additions. It is Grade II listed.
