Ray Freeman - The White Hart, Quainton

Working at Quainton is a sure way to develop a healthy thirst and our catering girls can testify to the appetite the lads have for tea, soup and pop, consumed on the premises. Sadly the Railway Arms in Station Road closed its doors 20 years ago but happily we are always sure of a warm welcome at the White Hart in the village, by Cis and Jim Stubbs. They are marvellous in putting up with our boiler suits, mud and dirt but of course we try to smarten up a bit before we go to the local for a pint. For about 7 years they have been supplying us with food and drink and two years ago Frank Boait persuaded Jim to become a shareholder. In desperation Jim has had to invest in a new tin Swarfega for the Gents, and Cis has made some extra covers for the cushion in the bar. Many thanks to you both for your hospitality and for your splendid ale, praise be!

The text in this Quainton Railway Society publication was written in 1977 and so does not reflect events in the 38+ years since publication. The text and photographs are repeated verbatim from the original publication, with only a few minor grammar changes but some clarifying notes are added if deemed necessary. The photos from the original publication are provided as scans in this internet version of this long out of print publication.
