In 1800 Edmund Bartell wrote :
` The public house, by the name of the Windmill, the only one which I saw, and I believe the only one in the place, is truly uncomfortable: indeed the people, in general, seem far behind their neighbours in civilisation'

In 1806 he added :
`This house has since been rebuilt, and I hear is an excellent one, but is carried on by the same people'.

On Thursday 24th September 1863, William Blogg sought to recover £1 15s 11d from coastguardsman James Sharpe.
It was heard that Blogg had killed pigs for Sharpeand provided imbibations to him.
The defendant was uncommonly fond of a certain draught known as "hot-pot", a combination of warm beer and spirits.
His Honour was inclined to believe that the value of spirits could be recovered; but since that could be disputed in law, he deducted the value from the debt.
Payment of the balance was to be paid at once.
