I wondered where it might be...I did wonder if it might be the building that Roger had pictures of that was at the top of Robinhouse Lane (is that the right lane??)

I've looked in Roger's book and he has Robin Cottages as the site of the Sportsman. Could it have been in the bottom near the river where Pendelfin was started? I seem to remember him mentioning a brewery there in year dot...
