The Cocoa Tree Coffee Tavern was built as a temperance coffee room in 1878 by William Barber of Pinner. It quickly became popular with day visitors and pleasure grounds were added nearby. It was also used as a meeting place for local organisations, evening entertainments and dancing classes. It later served as premises for the Conservative Club in Pinner and is currently used as an office.
