The current building replaced earlier buildings, one of which is shown on the north side of Kings Road on the 1795 map; Cary's New And Accurate Plan Of London And Westminster. The old tavern was a noted house of entertainment in the reign of Charles II. The grounds and tea gardens were extensive and it was elegantly fitted out. The house was probably called "The World's End" because of its then considerable distance from London and the bad and dangerous state of the roads leading to it. As it stood close to the River Thames most of the visitors made the journey by boat.
