Pip is frightened when he sees the one-eyed man he met in the tavern years before. This was the man who stirred his drink with the file (from Joe's forge) and gave Pip a one pound note.

From the text:

"I entertain a conviction, based upon large experience, that if in the days of my prosperity I had gone to the North Pole, I should have met somebody there, wandering Esquimaux or civilized man, who would have told me that Pumblechook was my earliest patron and the founder of my fortunes."
