The Spotted Dog is a former Halled House with cross wings dating from the 15th century, and over a long period it has been used as a coaching inn. The building is Grade 2 listed and has been used as a public house since the early 19th century and possibly longer. The building's history is complex.The front building comprises of 15th and 16th century weatherboarded timber-framed structures, while the central bayed hall is thought to be the oldest secular building in Newham. The Spotted Dog was extended to the rear in two phases during the 19th century with more recent 20th century additions and alterations. Butler Hegarty Architects produced an Options Appraisal suggesting a Conservation Strategy principally designed to conserve the surviving fabric of the core elements of the historic building and protect its long term future.
