It looks as though they have retained the old pub sign, suitably altered, for the name of the new development. The sign features a tree, not an oak, walnut, chestnut or most other trees used in pub names. They planted some of these trees near my old house to celebrate the millennium, but they did not survive.

i had it in my mind earlier on but couldn't remember the name. i once picked my brother in law up from there with his& our kids, They'd gone metal detectoring in the woods & couldn't remember/find  where they were parked  :D  Scenic tour of the lanes looking for a car!!   Another dead pub, then a restaurant then a house now seemingly back to a pub

You have it Pete.
In1976 I had started small-bore target shooting in a disused quarry in Borough Green, and my girlfriend (now wife) was having horse riding lessons at a farm in Crouch. So we and a few others would meet up in the pub on Sunday lunchtime after our activities. Happy Days!
