loco was founded by its one-time chip shop owner, who purchased
the locomotive (currently positioned in the bar area) from the local
Bentley colliery, intending to use it as a garden barbeque. When
he decided to convert the chip shop into a pub, he thought it would
be a good idea to make a feature of the loco and theme the entire
pub around it. And so it has remained for the last 20 years.
