This was built in 1929, opening on 1 December. Designed for the Davenport Brewery, by Francis Goldsbrough (from the local architectural practice of Bateman and Bateman), this is one of the largest and finest examples of a Brewer’s Tudor-style public house in the country. It was a replacement for the much smaller public house of the same name which had stood on the site and, in the 1870s, had been described as ‘a small, stone-built hostelry, with an estimated value of £250’.
