At the rear of the Full Shilling
The gate at the rear of the Full Shilling bears the sign for Guinness and the address St James' Gate Brewery, Dublin.
The pub on Tivot Dale used to be called the Kings Head but that closed in 2008 and in 2009 it re-opened as the Full Shilling.
It is classed as a "Freehouse" which in the UK means - not tied to a particular brewery and therefore free to purchase its ale from anywhere.
Searching for information about pubs on the internet is difficult as there are so many sites that merely list everything in the "yellow pages phone book" and have no real information of any use whatsoever and they clutter up the first dozen pages of any internet search. The pub review pages don't seem to rate it very well but they aren't necessarily reliable and as a teetotaller myself I wouldn't know.
I have some more photos of the pub which I'll be showing at a later date.
A contribution to signs, signs and Good Fences.
