The ‘Black Boy’ in Sevenoaks will always be just that to me. Used to go there on Saturday lunchtimes with the much-missed singer-songwriter Monty Parkin (whom Jim Knowledge and indeed John from Kemsing will doubtless remember) in search of bookings for us to play at country-house parties that evening.

The boy in question was apparently a little pageboy at the nearby Knole House.

There was an old pub near the heavily bombed market place in South Shields.

It was called the 'Norfolk & Suffolk' and survived the war, but was demolished later- I remember it around 1960 - it was known by the locals as the 'Two F....s' although that never appeared on the pub sign.

I `ad that John from Kemsing in my cab the other day. `e `ad come up to the Smoke to see `ow many odd pub names still existed on the north bank of the Thames between Westminster and London Bridge. `e`s writing a book or something.
I said, "Morning Jay. I see you `ve been on that MudCat again with news about the "Black Boys" pub in Sevenoaks. Bloody P.C. shame".
`e said, "Well, yeah. That`s what the papers said. Jim, you and your band `ave been at it for donkey`s years. `ave you come across any odd pub names?"
I said , "Yeah, a couple stick in my mind. There was "The `oy and `elmet" near Canvey in Essex, some thing to do with a boat and an `at and "The Crypt" near Notting `ill. That was licenced and nothing to do with the church."
e` said , "They`ve never changed their names, `ave they?"
I said , "I don`t think so but I`m told there is another one in Sevenoaks. So as to not offend people. It`s "The White `art", top of River `ill. They`re gonna call it "The Dear Deer". Very apt at their prices!!!"

My Dad's favourite discussion was how names of pubs were distorted. So the Goat and Compasses, as mentioned above, from God Encompasses Us, and he reckoned that the Elephant and Castle was from "Eleanor Infanta of Castile". Which is possible, but it's also true that the Elephant and Castle sign was a guild sign. Was that because they had misheard "Eleanor Infanta ..." - or was it a reference to the merchant cargoes?
There are books on this stuff, of course.
The pubs in my old stomping ground of Wapping were always fun. The Town of Ramsgate, named after a ship, as was the Prospect of Whitby. Around here they're mostly from the coats of arms of the landowning families, like the Bear for the Nevills.

I don't think it was Pomona Docks, Raggy. I think it was the Royal Pomona Palace and botanical gardens which became the Pomona Docks later. Apart from that, spot on. The palace and gardens had their heyday in the late 19th / early 20th century when the song was written. It was very popular in Manchester around then but was not really known as Lamora until the 1960s when the Yetties did their version.

Hi John- I also used to play music at an old miners' Black Boy, in Low Moorsley, Co Durham. The sign was of a classic black (forgive me) sambo & I often wondered why.
I just looked it up on Google Earth- it's still called that, but the old sign is nowhere to be seen....

There is a pub in Sevenoaks, which, for over a hundred or more years is called "The Black Boys". There is a plaque on the wall detailing the history of this pub and how it`s name may have originated. We are informed the brewery owners of the pub are to change the name to "The Restoration" for fear of offending some people.

In Horsham St Faiths, Norfolk UK there's a pub called the Black Swan.
But most of the locals there call it the Datty Duck. (We used to live in that village)
The Murderers pub in Norwich (dates back to the 17th Century) is so-called because one of the landlords murdered his wife there in the 19th Century. Before that the pub was known as The Gardeners.
The Adam and Eve in Norwich was founded in 1249, and is haunted. There's a bar down in the basement and lots of people have seen/felt the ghosts down there.
Then there's the Pig and Whistle. Medieval one, and piggen is an Anglo-Saxon word for a drinking vessel. Whistle was once 'wassail'.
Finally, naughty Jamie Oliver, a TV chef, set off in a travelling pub-on-wheels for a programme, and he called his pub the Cock In Cider. Tut tut!

There is a village in Cornwall called Lamorna and there is a pub there named "The Wink".

Not fiction but fact.

As an aside people sing a song which I know as Pomona which some people claim to be from Cornwall.

Abject nonsense I have to say, Lamorna is not even a one horse town, it certainly doesn't have an Albert Square for one and it would take an age to get a taxi to get there from any surrounding town

Martha Grimes, when she started writing and publishing
her series of police-detective murder mysteries featuring
the character of Richard Jury,
always named each mystery after a pub or club of some kind.
Several pubs named in this thread
have become titles of Richard Jury mystery books,
such as The LaMorna Wink.

A more recent installment, however, is titled
'The Knowledge' and it refers to the arcane mysteries
known to taxicab drivers in Greater London --
but I really don't know that there actually exists
a pub called 'The Knowledge.'

I spent some WWii time in Stony Stratford, Buckinghamshire, staying in The Old George [cafe not pub] in the High Street, near the neighbouring signs of The Cock & The Bull; supposed by local folklore [tho disputed* like so many origin-claims] to be the eponyms of the idiomatic name for a tall tale, "Cock-&-Bull-Story", as by the time a story had travelled out of one and into the other it had got a bit garbled.

a strange combination which may have evolved from two pubs. I always remember a lass climbing in through the window at the Festival because of the crowds.

And while we are on the subject of two pubs: My uncle hailed from Knighton where they had a pub called the Lion and and two doors away a pub called the Lamb. His relative who lived in the house in between acquired the nickname "Hugh the Peacemaker" because he lay betwixt the Lion & the Lamb!!

GSS: yes, Nora Devine is sadly missed: she died in 1999. No longer a folk CLUB as such, but still a thriving Folk Festival Association, with an annual festival and other events throughout the year. Ian McCalman of The McCalmans recalled that Nora gave him their first booking, and Aly Bain was also an early player. They also used The Footballers' and Cricketers' Arms, which is now one of our monthly session venues.
And Nora's name lives on as we run an outdoor stage every year at the Festival, which is "The Nora Devine Stage".

Cambridge's The Baron Of Beef is a name I have not come across elsewhere.

Hampstead Heath, near where I grew up, has its famous trio of The Old Bull & Bush [famous eponym of a music hall song], The Spaniards Inn, and Jack Straw's Castle.

And don't forget The Elephant and Castle, which gave its name to a London District —— I have heard it said that the name was a corruption of The Infanta Of Castile; but I have always thought that it must be at least infuenced by the way that the rook of a fine chess set is often modelled as an elephant carrying the castle on its back as a sort of howdah -- sometimes filled with soldiers.

Thinking back to my student days at The London Hospital in Whitechapel, The pub most used by students (other than the students' union bars) was The Good Samaritan: an appropriate enough name for a pub sandwiched between various hospital and medical college buildings.
After you graduated, it was more likely you would go to "The Grave Maurice" - just over the road near Whitechapel tube station. There was a code for this, when speaking in front of patients - "See you in the chapel later" - so the patients assumed their junior doctors were all religious....?
"The Grave Maurice" and "The Blind Beggar" were both frequented by the Kray brothers, and indeed the murder of Cornell by Ronnie Kray took place during my time at medical school. Some info about these 2 pubs and the goings on there in this article:

Going through Rochdale I saw a pub called "the Ladyhouse" and wondered what it was before it was a pub. But reality is that there is a road called Ladyhouse Lane, which still begs the same question. map the roads have been modernised but I would guess the pub was in that lane.

In Beverley the pub in the centre was always known as the "Push" because it had a swing door with the words "Push" in big letters. I believe it has reverted to "the Punch" now.

Nearest back street boozer here is the Lord Exmouth known to one and all as the Monkey House for reasons that are obvious when you go inside. Also nearby is the Checkside Tavern which is named after a kick from a narrow angle in Ozzie rules footy.
