On Thursday 8th February 1844, agriculturists, gentlemen and farmers from the area attended a dinner at the FIGHTING COCKS to welcome the arrival of Mr. Wallis. They wished him a long and happy continuance in that respectable and ancient public place of hospitality and accommodation, which had always been distinguished on that part of the road. Many loyal, constitutional and convivial songs were sung and the company separated at a late hour, highly gratified by the liberality and attention of the landlord.
