It is understood that the original building dates back to the 14th century; which makes it one of the oldest buildings in the village of East Harptree. The original use of the building is believed to have beeen as a meeting place and had connections with both the parish church and school.
It became an inn at the behest of the Waldegrave family who wanted a hostelry at each cardinal compass point of the estate; only two of the original pubs remain; this one (at the North) and the Waldegrave Arms Chewton Mendip (at the East).
