The Victorian period's generalised drive towards a 'civil society' encompassed sports and leisure activities. New rules and regulations were drawn up for many sports, and clubs and societies were founded to organise events and activities, thus encouraging more people to take part.

Surrey County Cricket Club was formed in 1845. The Duchy of Cornwall leased his market garden at Kennington Oval to the club as a site for their clubhouse. The building on the grounds cost £300 initially, but there were improvements and additions every year, this restaurant being one of them.
