Colin Posted this in our forum on 21st February 2007:

"It was with great sadness that I read of the sad loss of John Lewis. When I first started to drink in Merthyr and you told your friends “see you Friday at 6:30”, you knew it would be in “The Lamb”n those days pubs closed between 4 and 6 but quite often you would go in the back door and someone would shout “Close the curtains they can see us singing” It was a sad loss for Merthyr when it closed in 73.
I hope there is a Lamb up there in Heaven and people such as Syd Hill, Jim Ryan, Neil Jenkins, Ron Williams, Vines Perry and Harri Webb to name a few, now have a new Landlord.
It was a privilege to have known you John "
