The original Inn on this site dated from the early seventeenth century, and was known as the George, and later as the Old George. It was from this Inn that King Charles 11 made his escape to France on 15 October 1651. After the restoration of the Inn, about 1770, the name was changed to the Kings Head. The yard to the left of the Inn led to the Brewery of Vallance, Catt & Co., otherwise known as the West Street Brewery, the premises having been occupied as such since about 1750.
