This small inn was built about 1808 to replace the 'London House', a prefabricated wooden structure which had been erected in the 1730s when the York Buildings Company was working the nearby lead-mines. By 1800, the original building was in decay, and a surveyor's report of 1807, which described it as 'nearly in ruins' recommended that a new public house should be built. The building then erected comprises a two-storeyed rectangular block with a semi-octagonal central bay containing the entrance-doorway, to which flanking wings were added shortly afterwards. The structure is built of harled and whitewashed rubble, with hipped roofs.
