"Sloop Inn, St Dogmells. Mr T G Kendall, solicitor, Cardigan, applied on behalf of the tenant for the renewal of the license attaching to the Sloop Inn, St Dogmells. The Rev Mr Hughes, of St Dogmells, opposed on behalf of the Churches, and several of the inhabitants, on the ground that the house was not required, and was simply carried on for drinking purposes. There were other houses in the town, and since the -removal of the Royal Naval Reserve their number had become excessive. So far as accomodation was concerned, the latter body could get its meals at the workhouse at a fee of threepence per head. (Laughter). The inn in question was totally unsuitable as a public-house-it was nothing more than a cottage. The Bench asked Mr Kendal if, in the event of the license being granted, he was prepared to undertake to see that a wall was erected at the rear of the premises so as to keep the licensed premises entirely separate from the adjoining house. Mr Kendal said he could not give the undertaking. After some discussion the application was adjourned for the production of plans to show if the place could be suitably altered." County Echo 13 Feb 1908
