About

Built in the 1940’s, the Kehoe building was converted by the Fey Brothers (whose grandfather invented the slot machine) to a bar in December 1955. Named The Swinging Door, there were two swinging doors at the entrance. The price for a 12oz mug of beer was ¢20. In November 2006, Warren Chapman purchased the British Pub and brought back the original name “The Swingin’ Door”. Warren was born in Manchester, England and comes from a deep heritage of British heroes. Warren’s grandfather, William Chapman of the 70th Battery RFA, was given the Battle of Mons metal. His great uncle, PTE John Chapman, was 11th Hussars. Warren’s father, Raymond Chapman was a Grenadier Guard, hence the two guardsmen guarding the outside of the pub.
