Believed to have opened in 1806 by Thomas Shaw.[1] The Globe Brewery was part of the premises.

Thomas Marshall was the landlord from 1828 until his death in 1853, after which his son-in-law John Sunderland Tolson took over the running of the inn and brewery.

By the 1870s, it was in the possession of wine and spirit merchant Abraham Spivey. It was offered for sale in February 1904 by Abraham's son, auctioneer Abraham Ernest Spivey.[2]

As of 2016, the building was Thomson's Travel Agents.
