Built circa 1600.
A report in the Bury & Norwich Post** on Sep-26 in 1865 when Thomas Rainbow was the landlord states that:
In an argument with Alfred Moule, Rainbow said "hit me then" Moule obliged and hit him a back handed blow. Rainbow fell and his head struck the floor first. Moule was arrested in London and charged with manslaughter.
