This part of Shawbridge Street was formerly called King Street. In 1901 Edward Gallagher was running this old public house paying an annual rent of £50. The Gallagher family continued to serve the locals here until 1937. The licence was then taken over by George Millen.

Mr Millen's wife Agnes was running the pub until it was finally closed down and demolished in the 1960s.
