I came to work in Peterborough in November 1965 and stayed at this pub for about 6 months. The landlord was Albert Biggs and his wife Barbara (Babs). During my stay the pub was used by artistes who played panto at the ABC theatre. These included Clinton Ford, and Ford and Sheen who played the Ugly Sisters.

Bill West 1955-1958 I am an American G.I. who was stationed at R.A.F. Station Alconbury from 1955-1958. I am one of many who enjoyed the time spent in this pub. We could not have been treated any better any where in the U.K. Thanks!
Linda Keeley (nee Brothwood) 1951-1955 My parents Mary Brothwood and Gordon Brothwood ran the pub, until my dads death.
Anthony M Wright 1965-1966 I too stayed at the pub with Alan Turner and we both had free tickets to watch the panto given to us by the ugly sisters. We had a tour back stage into the chorus dressing room, quite an experience for two young men. Babs always burnt the toast at breackfast but we enjoyed our time there. Alan was originally from near Rotherham I from Sunderland. Lost touch now but it would be great to get in touch.
