There has been a pub at this location since 1538, which burnt down during the Great Fire in 1666. It was one of the first to be rebuilt after the fire in 1667 and the sign shows all the monarchs that have reigned during that time that the pub has been dispensing refreshments to the thirsty and hungry of the parish. I estimate there’s enough room for the next four monarchs (should we still have such things) until they have to think about another sign.
