According the local pub historian Dave Green[1], it was originally established circa 1801 as the "King William". George Walker took over in 1829 and ran the premises as a beerhouse before obtaining a full licence at the Brewster Sessions of 1861. His son, George Henry Walker, took over the licence before eventually selling the Commercial to Bentley & Shaw, Ltd..

It was the meeting place of the "Prince Alfred" Lodge of the Royal Ancient Order of Foresters.
