A beerhouse is shown at this location on the 1884 OS map. It doesn't appear on the 1905 or 1928 maps so presumably closed between 1901 (the date of the last landlord entry found) and that date. It was certainly closed by 1909, as the Rate book of that year lists it as "Late PH".
The building at this location has a sign, "The Red House". The beerhouse probably only took up a small part of the building, but it isn't clear which, though the map seems to imply it was somewhere in the middle.
The Red House can be seen here on an old OS map.
