The building dates from the late 16th century.
In 1720 John Moore's will listed a kitchen, parlour, old parlour, brewery, buttery, dining room, 6 bed chambers and buttery and outside yard with 8 cows, 4 hogs and mare. Bought by Thomas Emmerson in 1737. Bought by Messrs Cobbold of Cliff brewery in 1829. The Pightle are domestic buildings standing at the rear of what was the 'Kings Head' public house until the early years of the twentieth century. Cobbolds sold pub to Ernie Shepherd who opened a garage & cycle shop (later called Tudor Rose Garage). Now used as two shops.
