The building dates from the 15th or 16th century.
We would like to know more about this pub as it may have moved at some time - the census information suggests that it was close to the Kings Head?
Mark Jaffreys tells us:
On researching my family tree I have discovered that on the 1901 census, the next property on the list next to the King`s Head in the High street appears to be the Moulders Arms in George street. It appears that my grt grt grandmother is listed as beer house keeper.
Moulders Arms ( George Street ) and the Kings Head ( High Street) are next door to each other in the 1861 census. They are recorded as being next door to each other although the Moulders Arms are not named. ( William Perry , the occupant , was recorded as being an Iron moulder and beerhouse keeper.

It was given its name referring to the iron foundry once located behind the building.
