Subject: RE: Contrived Pub names
There's worse... there was a pub in Dorchester, whose original name I no longer remember, but was changed in the early '80s to 'The Country Gentleman' and outfitted to look like the sort of place you took other people's wives to.
It didn't take long for a new abbreviation to form, and believe me, it wasn't 'I'll see you in the Gent'...
