Flintshire Memories: We Three Loggerheads
This pub, situated across the A494 from Loggerheads Country Park, was originally called the Three Loggerheads Inn.
The origin of the unusual name is believed to be a dispute between a local vicar and landowner in the mid-eighteenth century. The landlord of the inn invited the two parties to the inn in an attempt to broker an agreement. This led to the common usage of to be 'at Loggerheads' to mean a disagreement.
A replica of the old pub sign, painted by Richard Wilson RA from Colomendy Hall, hangs inside the restaurant and depicts the heads of the vicar and landowner, with the landlord looking on, accompanied by the words 'We Three Loggerheads'.
