GUEST,Terry Coach House at Farningham (UK) (103* d) RE: Coach House at Farningham 20 Jan 09


I too remember the Finbar & Eddie 'incident' to which Vic relates. I believe it must have been about 1972 when John broke his leg. At the end of the evening we had gone into the pub to 'cash up' and probably after 'one for the road' left as Danny (Landlord) was going to bed. Before leaving the car park we looked through the side window of the Coach to see a 'cocktail' being mixed from the optics. Being late we decided not to interfere. On returning the next day we found out that non of the 'afters' were actually paid for and Danny non too pleased that his spirit bottles were empty. Rather than cause any upset during the weekend John Barker dealt with the matter in his usual unflappable manner.
John was in fact still around for some time after that as he moved away to take on a pub down near Axminster and Hartley called in to see him in July 1981. He died sometime in the 80's but I'm afraid I can't remember which year.
