This substantial building was erected after 1824 on building plot lot 69 which was bought by Quintin Rhodes, the brewer, for £410. Originally the house had decorative Georgian railings in front but these were victims of the World War II need for metal.

The Late Dr James Lodge who was a resident of Wetherby House told a good tale of Cola Honey emanating from the Brewery.
