I drank in The Harrow for a time but only in the mid-day session for a fairly short while when I worked on construction of the adjoining building to the left, the builders were Archard and Quinion of Uxbridge. The landlord of the pub wasn't happy since the new building was to be an off-licence on land that had originally been part of the pub's land, a Courage pub in those days around 1967. At some time prior to that, the land on which the new building was erected, had been a blacksmith's and to the rear right corner was a well that was filled and concreted before foundations could be installed. To the left-hand side of the carpark was a large wooden barn, used as a timber merchants. I don't recall the name of the Harrow's landlord but his wife's name was Dolly; they had a very talkative mynah bird that sometimes perched outside, often screeching "Doll's not well".
