The site was first feued to David Edmond as early as 1694, with William Johnstone recorded as proprietor of 'houses and biggins' by 1771. First mention of a public house appears in 1840 when John Mitchell Senior, a builder, took over the property which comprised "a dwelling house with stables and garden behind lately occupied as an Inn".
