Very interesting Cyril. So the pub was run by the same family for 91 years. Those were the days!

What's the future for this pub? Is it being renovated as a pub or other use?

I got told to leave this pub, late 70's, purely because I was wearing a biker jacket. My then girlfriend wasn't impressed !
