I have just added this pub to that list but your help is definitely needed regarding it's history.

As the information is found or sent to me, including photographs, it will be shown here.

Thanks for your co-operation.

 

Closed in July 2019 for a complete revamp, as the sign says and to be reopened at a later unknown date.
