Chris Garrand - As a student back in the 1970s and early 80s I lived in both South Stoke and Midford and frequented the Packhorse often (used to walk up from Midford to play shoveha'penny). Even when I lived across town I still used to walk out for a few drinks. Ray was the landlord. It was - and still is - my ideal of what a pub should be.
