Public house. Early C18, possibly with earlier core but much altered and
extended. Stucco and cement render; tiled eaves courses to pantile roof,
Welsh slate roofs to rear wings. 2 storeys, 5 bays with wing to rear left,
shorter wing in rear angle and C20 flat-roofed additions to rear right and
right return (not of special interest). Corniced pilaster to far left.
Stone doorcase between bays 1 and 2 with panelled double-door in Tuscan-
columned aedicule having triglyphs, vermiculated frieze and pediment with
vermiculated tympanum. All ground-floor bays have renewed sashes with
glazing bars in stone architraves with projecting sills. 1st floor has
unequally-hung 9-pane sashes in matching surrounds. Boxed eaves to swept
roof. Rear: wing on right has external end stack. Historically important as
one of the principal coaching inns of the town. After the 1723 Fire of
Wetherby, William Parker is recorded as having insured 'The moveable goods of
the inn' for £500 (Unwin, p.61).
