Lovely photo this was my mum & dads watering hole in the early 50's. They lived at Mere Oaks for a while then moved to Pepper Lane Standish. Arthur & Dorothy Hayes were their names.

When I used the Boars Head in the 70s the beer was, I think, Almonds. The brewery was in Standish near the traffic lights.
