Billy Murgatroyd in his day was known to all residents of Yeadon as 'Billy Murg.' He was an enterprising man who helped put Yeadon as a town on the map in the 1870's.
As the fearsome owner of Moorfield Mill, on the site of the present restaurant, blunt Billy's sayings were famous throughout the region, he once said in a courtroom,

As Billy himself would have undoubtedly said,
Why settle for less than t'best?
