This pub has now been demolished.

I recall reading that in the early 1900's the landlord bought a stolen gas meter form someone he knew and installed it himself.  The installation was badly done resulting in a gas leak and this in turn led to an explosion and fire with a number of people being injured and if I remember rightly the loss of one life.
