  • He was my Grandad too. I remember the geese one was called Bill. There was an old caravan out the back.Bill would let us kids in but wouldn’t let us out. We had to be rescued. I have photos of one of the bus trips and the interior of the pub. My Mum corresponded with their evacuee for years.

  • It would be great if we could have copies of the photos for the archive.

  • My grandad, Jim Smith, ran this pub when I was growing up in the 1950’s. I remember the outside loo being wallpapered with a large engraving of the Battle of Trafalgar and the death of Lord Nelson. There were 3 angry geese out back, who chased us always. Grandad trained Home Guard in the pub yard in WW2 and organized housing for children evacuees from London. I think he was also involved with the football team and also organizing bus trips.
