'Ninety years have passed but New Quay's Sea Horse public house had changed very little. The name has changed of course - it used to be the Sailor's Arms - but what remains the same is the name of Evans above the door.
For John Evans, the new owner of the Sea Horse, buying the pub is a trip back to his childhood. 'I used to come here as a child', said John. John's Uncle Sammy used to own the pub up until 1939 and the family still has a number of photos showing the pub and town when New Quay was a fishing and ship building centre.
The Evans family goes back a long way in New Quay's history, 'the family was called the Friendship family after my grandfather's ship - The Friendship, which sank off southern Ireland.' Old black and white photos cover the walls including a couple of a man sitting on the back of a bull at the bar! Apparently, the photo was taken in the sixties when the aptly named 'Peter the Bull' was the first New Quay man to lose his licence for driving with excess alcohol. Without another form of transport, Peter simply mounted his bull, rode it through the pub door and up to the bar to order a pint! Now Peter and his unlikely steed are immortalised on the walls of theb pub.'
