Superintendant Palmer complained about the landlord of the Bridge Inn, Monday 6th February 1905. A private party had been arranged in December and the Superintendant had sent an officer to advise that persons could not be allowed to be customers to 10 o'clock and then made private friends afterwards. On the night, a constable had visited the house and found persons who had been in the house before 10 o'clock, gathered in the club room. It turned out that a ball had been arranged and tickets sold for 6d each. The constable cleared the room.
Being the first licence he had held, the landlord said he thought it in order to allow his visitors into the club room to dance.
It seems the licence was temporarily renewed until a later Sessions.



No change recommended at the First Joint Committee Meeting of Bullards and S&P 29.05.1962
Sales reported as 189 barrels.

A popular haunt of anglers throughout the season.
