The pub is first named as The Green Man and Horns in 1725 when a Coroner's Inquest was held here and later it became a meeting place for the Manor court.  It was renamed the Surrey Hotel and Tavern before finally becoming the Horns. In 1826, cricket was played opposite on Kennington Common and the Surrey CCC was formed here in 1845.  *
It was completely rebuilt in 1887 with an assembly room and masonic temple, it was severely damaged by a VI flying bomb on 16th August 1944. The assembly rooms were destroyed, the pub was damaged but went on until it was finally closed closed, and was demolished, in 1965. *
