Proposals drawn up by SPPARC architecture for a six-storey building include nine flats, a replacement bar/pub on the Great Dover Street side and a commercial unit fronting Tabard Street.

The current building dates was constructed for Courage brewery in 1965 but pub history websites indicate that a victualler has occupied the site since at least 1790.
