This public house was situated on the east side of the High Street, just below Bernard Street and was probably built in the mid 18th century. Its name in dates from 1740 when landlord George Burcy moved from the Red Lion, a public house once known as the Nag’s Head, and the name probably followed the landlord. Destroyed in the Blitz, the Nag’s Head was replaced by a temporary public house which endured until 1957 when a new permanent public House was built slightly further north on the corner of Bernard Street. The name was changed to Fiddlers in 1991 and has undergone a number of changes since then.
