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.
