"George Kirk, landlord of the Brynhoffnant Inn, Llangranog, was charged with supplying a bottle of Bass at 5.25 p.m. on a Saturday to John Griffith Jones, of New Quay. Mr. D. Roy Evans (Newcastle Emlyn), for defendant, contended that his client had given strict instructions to his wife not to supply during closing hours. This view was upheld and the case dismissed. Mrs. Kirk was charged with supplying John Griffith Jones with a bottle of beer on the day in question and in this case Mr. Roy Evans contended that the charge instead of being of "supplying" should, according to the wording of the Order, have been for "selling." This case was dismissed on payment of costs" CN 10 Nov 1916
