In 1995, the council boarded up the building in an attempt to discourage the vandalism
that was costing several hundreds of pounds a year.
A local businessman came
up with an idea to convert the building into a theme pub and, with the help of colleagues in the building trade, the idea
went from drawing board to the real thing.
Support came from the Rural Development
Commission in the form of a grant towards the building costs.
All of the wood
used in the building was reclaimed from the old breakwaters and groynes that used to be on the Chapel Beach.
