The Magpie closed in 1954 due to "lack of trade". Unsurprising, given the pub's remote location. Though historically, before the mass-migration from the land in the mid-20th century, there were probably a lot of people hereabouts.
The name may refer to an ancient meaning for the word magpie, "a half pint".
