History of The Hit or Miss

The building that is now known as The Hit or Miss was originally owned by the furniture makers, Dancer and Hearne.

In 1860s William Hearne, a labourer, and his wife Eliza, a lacemaker, established The Hit or Miss pub, amalgamating a series of cottages. Legend has it that there was a one-man workshop shed behind the pub where chairs or parts of chairs were made.
