Some History of this Pub
The Small Thorns beer house was, like the Rising Sun Inn, located in Sun Street at Woodville.

Dubbed 'The City,' this locality is thought to be the oldest part of Woodville. A thoroughfare to the south-east is actually called The City, beyond which is Butt Lane, thought to derive from archery butts that were once positioned down the hill.

Locally-born Edward Mee was the publican in the early 1870's. The former potter kept the Small Thorns with his wife Sarah who hailed from Moira. The couple's son George was a teacher.
