The original 12 pubs bought in 1979 by Sams were owned by Henekey's, a Trust House Forte subsidiary, so as far as I know they all used to sell Watney Mann Truman beers.

The Cheese was a free house and bought some time later during the London spending spree.

It was.  Darkieboy posted a pic ages ago in the thread below of a beermat with the original 12. I used to have one of these and leaflets but in those days I didn't imagine for a second that brewery marketing material would become collectors items!
