Open in 1614 as the "Blew Bell" till 1729 when it changed name to the "Globe", it remained with that name till 1760 when it changed again to the "Black Horse" where it remained in operation till 1864. It then changed to the "Alexandria Shades" for four years to 1868. The next mention was under the name of the "Royal Yacht" in 1871 till 1886, and then again in 1887 as the "Royal Jubilee" till 1897. The last change being in 1897 as simply the "Jubilee" losing its royalty and closing in 1928.

However, having said that I have just found the following passage that makes reference to a pub called the "Globe" in the High Street being sold in 1804.
