During the World War II period, it was the first hotel encountered by troop convoys as they passed through town. Upon their arrival, regardless of the hour, owners Gladys and Eric Harvey, opened the bar for service. Because of the War, the hotels beer supply was restricted by quotas and on one hot thirsty day, the troops drank the bar dry. Amazed at being unable to buy a beer at his favourite pub that day, local poet Dan Sheahan wrote the poem “A Pub With No Beer”.
