In 1765, the sign on the door is reported to have to have read:

  • No Thieves, Fakirs, Rogues, or Tinkers
  • No Skulking Loafers or Flea-Bitten Tramps
  • No Patting the Wenches
  • No Banging Tankards on the Table
  • No Dogs Allowed in the Kitchen
  • No Cockfighting
  • Flintlocks, Cudgels, Daggers and Swords to be handed to the Innkeeper for safe keeping
  • Bed for the night, 1 shilling
  • Stabling for horse, 1 pence
mmm...I'm not sure that times have changed...
