Jolly Farmers 2016?

The house as we see it today was built in 1892, however I have reference from the census's going back to 1851 of a pub with this name. From between 1988 and 1994 it went under the name of the "Elephant," then from 1994 to 2002 as "Jordans," till 2007 but since  then it has reverted again to its original name. I also believe it has also been called "Hogshead" probably between 1994 and 2007.
