The Salisbury Crest was one of two public houses identified in 1756 - when it was called The Kings Head, It was renamed by 1820 when the publican was William Pallett. The other public house was the Crown (later renamed the Rose & Crown). William Whittingstall, a brewer who lived in Hoddesdon, held a mortage on the property, which was foreclosed in 1790, and the Crown was sold to Samuel Whitbread, a brewer who owned the nearby Bedwell Park.
