Open on 28 August 1866 and referred to as the "Rendezvous Luncheon Bar" in the Post Office Directory 1874.

The premises was acquired by brewers Flint and Co. in 1888 after George Burgess ran up a debt of 900. The following year the brewery did some extensive alterations to the house and added a commercial dining room on the first floor with  private sitting and smoking rooms.

The house has been in its time a shoe shop, but today (2011) it operates as an Indian restaurant.
