The Ashton began life as an ordinary farm cottage with parts of it dating back to the 1650's, once called the Coach and Horses, the old coaching inn was renamed the Smyth Arms in 1749 after the Smyth family who were lords of the manor and principal landowners in the area who lived at the Ashton Court Mansion. It was named The Dovecote when it was 80% destroyed by fire on 26 June 2014, restored and reopened as The Ashton 3 April 2015, primarily as a dining pub in the care of general manager Tomas Gelazius.
