On 9 November 1915 the inn was the venue for the first Women's Institute (WI) meeting held in England, after the first meeting in Wales on 16 September of that year. This was the inaugural meeting of the Singleton and East Dean WI (still in existence in 2015), and the landlady of the pub, Mrs Laishley, was a founder member. At one time the pub also served as the village bakery.
