The village of Keynsham developed along the Bath-Bristol Road, near the junction of the Rivers Chew and Avon. This inn was typical of its time and would have been a thriving business, serving the needs of many different types of traveller. Diarists often commented on the quality of the rooms, food and drink available, thus influencing the popularity of the establishment with potential customers. The sign of the pub can be seen hanging outside - shops often had signs outside showing what kind of trade or business was offered there.
