The pub dates back to 1829, when it was opened by Waterloo veteran Tom Evans of the Royal Horse Guards - also known as the Oxford Blues.

It underwent a significant refurbishment in 2015 and prior to closing in March due to the Covid-19 lockdown had built a reputation for cuisine and was popular with both locals and visitors to the area.
