Sean added: "... My Grandfather and Grandmother Mr Trevor Wildin and Mrs Bessie Wildin (Elsmore) started renting the Royal Oak on Fetter hill on 27th July 1937.
The inventory agreement shows fixtures, fittings and stock of a value of £48.00.  The Rent was £12 per annum, payable at £1 per month.
They Moved to the Britania Inn at Coalway on 4th July 1950, and left there for Worcester in 1956".  

Frederick Cook added: "... I assume that this pub was demolished long ago. I am now in my seventies and paid many visits to Fetter Hill in my childhood and youth but have no recollection of this pub. I do remember the George Inn but that closed many years ago and is now a private home".

Peter Jones added: "... I remember it well, I lived just up the road and used to play on the wall with my dinky toys with Brian Cox, his uncle was the landlord. In school holidays Brian used to stay there. I also remember the previous landlord , My sister Ruth used to play with Diane and always remember they had a big playhouse in the garden. I also think you may have had an uncle Donald".
