The Elihu Yale
44-46 Regent Street, Wrexham, UK
This pub is named after the founder of Yale University, who lies buried in Wrexham churchyard, where the epitaph on his tombstone tells the story of his life: Born in America, of an ancient Welsh family, Yale worked in India, where he rose to become Governor of Fort St George. During the last 22 years of his life, he divided his time living at his estate near Wrexham and his home in London, where he died in 1721.
The history about his life is nice, but the meal of this pub is another history...
