The earliest known record of the pub is from 1818, with the first record of the name "Waggon & Horses" from 1834. The pub was renamed Potters Lodge, before returning to its original name in 2009 when new owners bought and refurbished the venue.

In recent years, it was known as a "family-friendly" (with a small children's play area) pub and had separate eating and drinking rooms as well as monthly live music, with fine wines, real ale and regular guest beers. Also on-site were two pet donkeys called Brazil and Elvis, pigs and a sheep.

The venue then slowly increased in popularity with many nights being fully booked. Then on the 27th June 2011 the pub was closed the same as every Monday night and a local resident spotted smoke coming from the roof of the pub. Fire crews later blamed arsonists as they had found evidence that multiple fires had been set around the property, and forced entry at the rear of the kitchen area.

The pub has been closed ever since.
