I used to go to this pub often in the 1970's. The landlord at the time was Ron Reader a former boxer with a broken nose. He had pictures of racehorses all over the wall. A regular at the pub was Jack Young a great character and ex england cricketer who would tell the same story about how he nearly bowled out Don Bradman. On one occasion I overheard the Landlord on the phone arranging for a jockey to come to the pub the next day. I took the day off college and arrived at the pub for lunch to find the jockey, Greville Starkey and actor Trevor Howard at the bar (his wife had gone to the west end shopping for the afternoon) and the next couple of hours was spent chatting to the two greats of turf and screen.  It was an exciting pub to drink in with a great landlord and punters, sadly missed. *
