Publicans transferred their licence from the Earl Grey, at Fore Hamlet, to the new Flying Horse in the 1950s.

In 1974, this newspaper sent photographer David Kindred to the Waterford Road venue, where he met some of the regular customers and staff behind the bar.

Pictures show lots of laughs being had and the fashion of the time, with many men sporting longer hair.
