The original pub sign was written by my grandfather, William Yates, he was a sign writer. When the pub closed for good the sign (see photo below) was stolen. The wording on the sign was:

Within this Hive
We’re all Alive
Good Liquor makes us Sunny
So if you’re dry Step in and Try
A flavour of our Honey.
Chris Whittington (February 2019)
