Publicans from during the mid 1960s until mid /late 1970s were John and Peggy Daniels with couple of sons.
John died during the 70s, Peggy left not long after.
My parents were some of the regulars there then - it was a great pub with a good crowd: Saloon and back - public - bar people alike.
Still the same pub into the early 1990s. It was made into one bar at some point but still same decor. The 1990s saw a close down, then refit - changing the layout and everything.
It sadly closed in 2009, and now with a  'sold sign', and the pub is likely to be flats soon. *
