- Smyth's was established over one hundred years ago, when it first operated an "early house" license to cater for employees of the local coal yard. The pub also served as the community morgue and frequently kept the bodies of drowning fatalities overnight. The pub is unique in licensing circles, in that throughout its 100-year history, it has only been owned by three families. The pub's décor suitably reflects its very interesting heritage. The adjacent restaurant also comes highly recommended. It serves steaks, char grilled burgers, pasta, chicken and salad.
