Thread Name: Contrived Pub names
Subject: RE: Contrived Pub names
I'm glad to say that - after that spasm a few years ago of renaming pubs, and fitting them all out from the smoked-glass-and-chrome catalogue - most of the ones near us have reverted to their original names. I say glad, because the new names included The Pink Domino; Porcupine Park (used to be the Queen Alexandra); and the Ginger Giraffe.
The annoying thing, though, is that with the return to the original names, there was a fortune spent making the pubs look like they always had done in the first place. Only this time round, it's all fake.
