Listed in the 1910 Redisham Rates book, but later annotated "delicensed". So must have closed some time between 1922 (last listed licensee) and the 1930s, during the period the book was in use.
Shown here on the 1884 OS map. The building at this location now appears too modern to have been the pub, so we assume the pub's been demolished.
