A Snippet of History

In the early morning of May 8th 1888 the hotel suffered a mysterious fire and was subsequently totally destroyed, there was no injury or loss of life as it was empty at the time.

Previously known as the ‘Scottish Tavern’ which dated from the 1790s, the name of the replacement and new hotel came from the locally famous ginger beer that was brewed on the premises.

Now better known as Nightlife, this building has been in Market Place in Ramsey since at least 1846.

The building is an Isle of Man Government listed building and looking at the beautiful architecture you can understand why that is.

If you look up above the first floor windows you can see Saddle Hotel inscribed in the stonework with carved saddles below.

A blacksmith used to have his foundry in the lane that runs alongside and I wonder if this has some connection to the name ‘Saddle Hotel’?

Built circa 1895 on a site that was once the Mona Aerated Mineral Co.

The first alcohol licence was granted at the same time despite great opposition from the local women inhabitants of Douglas.

The total cost of the Hotel along with 3 houses and 2 shops was put at £6000.

This lovely little pub is the only Pub in the Village and stands on the TT Course at Ballaugh Bridge, however according to my Manx book called ‘Manannan’s Isle’ by David Craine Ballaugh boasted a staggering 17 Pubs and 1 Hotel in 1830.

The image was captured on my Sony HX20V camera, resized and cropped  in Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud.

This famous Pub on the TT Course also holds a little history of the Manx Giant Arthur Caley who it appears lived for a short time at the Glen Mooar Inn which was on the site of the now present Hotel.

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR Camera with a Nikon 18-105 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

I have always admired this lovely little property that stands at the foot of Greeba Mountain and which is also closely associated with the Buggane of St Trinian’s Church which is just down the road from this location (I will cover St Trinian’s Church on another post sometime).

The Highlander which has been a Public House since the late 1800’s has now closed it’s doors in April 2012 for the last time.
