Named after a successful breech-loading weapon perfected by William Armstrong in 1859, this pub was in private ownership until bought by Ashby’s Staines Brewery in 1904.
Barley Mow Road
Dating from the early 18th century, the pub overlooks the Green.
Fox and Hounds
Dating from at least the 1780s when a regular fair was held there, the property is said to have had within it a post marking the boundary between Surrey and Berkshire, effectively putting it in two counties.
St. Jude’s Road
In existence as a beer house in 1856 but may be older.
A beer and grocer’s shop existed in Parkside Road (to the north of the present site) in 1841 and had acquired the name of the Sun and title of public house by 1856.
By 1866 it had moved to its present site and became an “inn” about 1871.
