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?

"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." correspondence from Mark Jaffreys:

Also "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" - from Mark Jaffreys

Other correspondence from Jim Hill:

the photo originally showing what was thought to be the building of the Moulders Arms pub is incorrect.

In fact the site is almost opposite at No 3 George st, which is now part of Partridges shop. I myself found a half soveriegn in the beer cellar when i started work there.

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