Thread Name: Contrived Pub names
Subject: RE: Contrived Pub names
Here in York we have a pub name changed to it's knickname The Unicorn Inn is now the Corner Pin It would be interesting to see if some of the other knicknames get adopted "The Spread Eagle" - "The Dead Beagle", The Brigadier Gerrard - The Belgrano. A recent quiz question in the local pub asked what one pub was called in 1992, we went through half a dozen names before making a selection, we wrong and we had not even considered the correct answer! Does anyone know if "The Labour In Vain" in Yarnfield Staffs is still open, it has always struck me as the strangest name for a pub.
