Description: Discussion on whether the Fishers Arms is required, gives location in relation to Tafarndy and Cwmanne. Detailed description of Fishers Arms and Tafarndy

The Fisher's Arms. Chief Constable Williams in opposing the renewal of the license of the Fisher's Arms, said he did so by the direction, of the justices sitting at the last sessions. There were three grounds of objection, the first two in being on the ground of redundancy, and the other on the ground of misconduct. Sergeant Thomas said he knew the Fisher's Arms, Cellan the licensee being James Davies. It had a six day license. The house was situated on the roadside leading from Cwmanne to Llanfair Cydogau. It had a front kitchen, parlour, small bar, back kitchen, small cellar and a dairy on the ground floor. On the first floor there were three bedrooms. There was no yard, but it had a stable for three horses, and a coachhouse. The premises were in a poor state of repair for a country public house: it had a fair trade. The rateable value on the buildings only was £6 10s The nearest public houses were Tafarndy. on one side and Cwmanne Inn on the other, each being about a mile on either side. Tafarndy Inn had five rooms on the ground floor and up- stairs bedrooms. It had a yard at the back, stableing for eight horses, and in his opinion Tafarndy was the most commodious. The trade done at Tafarndy was fair, and its rateable value was £9 10s. The population of Cellan in 1891 was 457, in 1901, it was 401, a decrease during the ten years of 56 inhabitants. In his opinion Tafarndy and Fisher's Arms were not both required to meet the requirements of the parish,and the least required was the Fisher's Arms, which was not required at all. He was present in Court or 29th November last when Davies. the licensee was fined 10s. and costs for keeping his house open during prohibited hours. It was found open at 10.25 p.m. on the 11th of October. The general conduct of the house during the past year had been very bad Cross-examined by Mr. J. E. Lloyd, solicitor, who represented the licensee, witness said he had been given to under- stand that the tenant was under notice to quit. The bench referred the license to Quarter Sessions for compensation.
