In 1903 permission was granted for the Star Tavern at No 24 High Street (old numbering) to be taken down and rebuilt. FFP reports this building not used as a tavern until the late 1890s, when it was known as The Dunearn Tavern, but that it appears to have been used as a dwelling house for over 300 years.
