Above the doorway are the words "Custom House" which I believe was added to the building circa 1810. However, the numbers of the cast-iron drainpipe give the year 1752.

It has been suggested that the pub was previously called the "White Hart" in circa 1823, and may also have had the name the "Malt Shovel" previous to that.

The building is now a private house and gained a Grade II listing status on 29 July, 1950 and is described as an 18th century building with 2 storey's and an attic.
