Thanks to the Southern Daily Echo for the following :-
"This particular pub, which is shown as a beer house on the 1878 Drink Map, dates back to the 1850s when it started life at the Victoria Arms, back to an era when Northam Road was better known as Northam High Street
It is understood that the pub changed its name during the 1870s when engine driver Mr J. Masters became the new licensee and perhaps changed the name of the pub as a playful acknowledgement to his other profession.
Welch’s Lion Brewery took the pub over in July 1876 and later sold it to Scrace’s Star Brewery for the sum of £500. It later belonged to Strong’s Romsey Brewery but had been taken over by the Whitbread Group when it ceased trading on 31 January 1982. The premises are now occupied by a firm of dental technicians but the old “Engineers Arms” lettering above the doors of the front entrance still remain."
Looking at the state of the place I think even the last bit about the dental technicians is no longer so.
