My uncle Sam Liggett owned the pub from the 50's until the late 60's. The pub had a lot of land to the rear on which he used to keep horses and pigs for pork and bacon. He hunted locally and appeared the type of gentleman publican which has now, I fear, become virtually extinct. The brewery was Border Ales based in Wrexham and he regularly visited the brewery taking a small me along sometimes as a treat. The pub had a first floor ballroom with an authentic "sprung" floor. Spent many a happy summer there in the 60's guzzling Vimto, playing on the local farms and getting " locked" in the stocks on the village green. No Housing Estates then just a quiet country village.
