Why Crocketts?

Crocketts is named after William Crockett, a wine and spirit merchant who sold his wares from the street in the 1840’s. Mr Crockett was also Mayor of Exeter in 1823. After housing a clothes shop for several years, it seemed fitting to name the bar after William given that the quaint old building now houses alcohol once more.
