History

The first known licensee was William Bales in 1850, although the building dates to 1542. Also known as the Gardeners Arms, it acquired its nickname from a murder. The story goes that in 1890, a lady of pleasure got violent with a client who would not pay and stabbed him to death. But that was just a story and the real murder took place in1895 when an ex-Cavalry man bludgeoned to death his estranged young wife Millie. The pub has been jointly known as the Murderers and the Gardeners ever since. Watney Mann closed the pub in 1970 and it re-opened in 1978 after a major refurbishment.
