This magnificent four-gabled timber-framed building dates from c 1500, and probably began life as the house of a wealthy merchant, although it may have been on this site that the wool staple had stood up until the 14th century. The staple house was where wool for export was stored and the tax paid.

Despite the antiquity of the building, the present Green Dragon has only been a public house since its restoration and extension in the late 1950s, replacing a much smaller brick-built pub of the same name that adjoined it on the east side. It was bought by the Common Council in 1569 from Thomas Grantham and by 1624 documentary records refer to the building as the Great Garrettes. It is known that there were six tenants at the time of sale, and seems to have remained as tenements and shops up until the 1950s. This pub has been closed since 2016. LinkExternal link
