Parts of the Bullers Arms are thought to date from the 16th century. Inn was originally called the Bakers Arms until 1898, when it became the Bullers Arms. The name was taken from Redvers Buller, Commander-in-Chief in South Africa, known as 'The Man of the Hour' following his success in the relief of Ladysmith during the Boer War. During the reign of Queen Victoria the inn was rebuilt after fire damage and in 1950 the smaller rooms which occupied what is now the public bar were made into one room.
