Mr W T Garratt, licensee and former county cricketer, has been at the Kings Head since 1912, and although nearly seventy seven years of age is still extremely active. Bill played for Essex as an amateur in 1899 & 1900. He was awarded his county cap after his second game against Warwickshire, because of a fine innings played when the county looked like losing the game. A serious illness prevented him from playing the following season, but he captained Surrey 2nd XI in 1902. As a native of Dulwich, he had a qualification by birth to play for his county. Bill continued to play for Loughton C C until he was sixty five years of age, captaining the North of Thames Licensed Victuallers Eleven for fifteen years.

His first wife died in 1938, but he married his present wife in 1939, and she has been a real partner, being born into the trade herself. Despite the bombs during the War (a 126 lb phosphorous bomb dropped on their coffee room), they have remained cheerful and happy in their vocation. - Black Eagle 1952
