Subject: Contrived Pub names
I was just sending a message re "Tap and Spile" reverting back to the Station.The Tap and Spile is a fairly good name ,but the worst I can remember was in Twickenham many years ago - changed names since I believe - called the Hedgehog and Stump.
Incidentally a Twickenham pub has also one my favourite pub names "The Cabbage Patch " (and I don't follow Rugby).
And , don't you just hate all that crap about Purveyors / Fine Ales etc especially when they only have bog-standard beer and lager.
One of our well known Folkies always hated the Pub sign "The New Inn" he used to go crackers when he saw that name .
What's your most disliked pub name ?
