I recently was aked for my opinions on names for a new pub opening in my town. The following were rejected.

'The Strangled Leper'

'The Septic Ferret"

'The Hugh Jarce Arms'

Any more out there?.

Ideally the name would have some relevance to the site or area the pub is in. I mean, you wouldn't call it the Station Inn if it wasn't near a station and didn't do rooms.

Or else maybe a historical connection. What was on the site before it was a pub ?

Lots of pubs owned by the Greene King brewery in England are being renamed "the Greene King" - at least, that's how it looks. The brewery has started replacing the old pictorial signs (usually depicting the pub name) with a sign just showing the brewery logo. This has been causing a bit of friction with the locals - in one village, I gather they were able to get the brewery to restore the old sign.

As for pub names, I regret the trend in recent years to replace old pub names, which usually have some sort of local historical significance, with "trendy" new names, usually designed to attract yuppies or young "binge drinkers" (well, they're the ones with the disposable income, apparently). Although old buildings are protected against alteration by law, it seems old names are not :(

There is a pub in Uxbridge which was renamed 'The Ostler', it was previously called 'The White Horse'. A spokesperson for the brewery explained that the change of name was to better reflect the range of services on offer.

I would have loved to have walked into the bar leading a horse just to see if the 'services' reflected the name.

I also used to attend a watering hole called 'The Stag & Pheasant' which was better known locally as 'The Staggering Peasant'.

The Flat Horse and Slug- that's the pub name my daughter came up with when she was 3.

I always liked the Railway and Naturalist on Bury Old Road, Manchester.

And the Flying Saucer in Lutterworth.

There was one in Peterborough that was on the market so long that they renamed it after the estate agent- the Jackson Stops.

NON PC ALERT
Then there's the Quiet Woman at Earl Sterndale- complete with pubsign showing a headless woman. A former landlord is supposed to have been provoked to murder by his wife's nagging.

I've seen more than one "Quiet Woman" shown as a headless woman. I think it was just a joke in most cases (albeit one that would be frowned upon by the PC brigade).

There was a pub "The Nag's Head" (I think in Islington IIRC) that showed the 'correct' horse's head one side, and a stereotypical picture of a harridan with curlers in and rolling pin on the other.

A pub in Liverpool used to be called "One Flew Over the Throstle's Nest". Clearly, the landlord and his mates (or the brewery?) didn't know what a throstle is (a mistle thrush, I believe) as the sign was merely a question mark. More recently the name has changed to merely "The Throstle's Nest" but there's still no picture.

And what flew over it?

In this area, Lancashire (aka Gods Country) it is common to give pubs nicknames eg

The Golden Lion becomes the Brass Cat

The Black Swan becomes The Dirty Duck

Stanley Arms became Sally Up-Steps (the brewery eventually renamed it to its nickname)

The Horseshoe is known as 'The Last Chance Saloon ( If you haven't pulled yet)



Some less PC ones are The Eagle and Child whose sign is an Eagle and Child (surprised eh?) becameThe Bird and B**st**d.

And finally The angel Gabriel whose sign is an angel in a long white robe blowing a trumpet Is known as The C**t and Trumpet

Houston has the Mucky Duck (which is the official name, not a nickname) instead of the Dirty Duck, but the mascot is still a black swan. It's carved wood and sits on a shelf over the bar. It used to sit by the cash register but some idiot tried to steal it. While the bar guy was processing his tab, the dude grabbed the swan and ran out the back door. Fortunately, he had paid by credit card so the pub had all his information and the swan was recovered in short order. Don't you love stupid/intoxicated criminals?

Actually, if you ask my Dad for directions, be prepared to remember many pub names rather than roads. It's just how they used to navigate....

Favourite pub names?
Anchor and Hope - Clapton (just 'cos it's contrary to the usual Hope & Anchor)
The Cheshire Cheese (Fleet Street)
The First In Last Out (FILO)
The Ring - Southwark (which was called such because of the boxing matches that used to go on in the back, but some opera nut re-did the sign as a gold ring with a bloke with an eye patch in the background....)
The Pond - Brighton.

An awful lot of years ago, the Kiwis and the Aussies back packing through London, nicknamed a pub in Tufnell park The Church, so they could honestly tell their parents that they went every Sunday.....

A lot of pubs have two names, the 'official' name that's on the licence and sometimes on the sign outside, and the colloquial. I used to go to a pub near the assizes in Norwich which everyone knew as The Murderers, but I have no idea what its 'real' name was.
Another was the pub under the old Daily Mirror building off Holborn Circus where many of the hacks would go to drink and grumble. Officially 'The White Hart', everyone knew it as 'The Stab'; as in 'the stab in the back'.
My local is called 'The Ramp' - no idea why, because the real name is (I think) 'The Miners'
Corruptions of existing names seem to occur all over the English speaking world, from the Mucky Duck and Brass Cat already mentioned to numerous others. I used to frequent a folk club held at 'The Lady of the Lake', which was known locally as 'The Bitch in the Ditch'

Nicknames:

- there was (is?) a pub in the centre of Stevenage New Town, Herts, called the "Edward the Confessor", known to locals as "Ted the Grass".

- a pub in Cambs (I forget the nearest village), "The Downing Arms" featured a poorly painted sign showing the aforesaid family's coat of arms, a lion rampant on a shield. The locals called it the "Scratching Cat" (sadly the pub has long been closed and is now a private house, like so many country pubs in England).

Talking of intoxicated animals, mucky ducks etc., there's a pub in Barngates near Ambleside "The Drunken Duck", apparently so named after a duck consumed some of the Barngates brewery's ale - the pub and its ales come with a personal high recommendation from me, incidentally :-)

ThreeSheds: I think the pub you saw will have been the "Hark to Mopsey" in Normanton, just NE of Wakefield. The sign shows a picture of a hunt in progress, so I would imagine that Mopsey was a particularly famous hound.

We have a "First in, last out" here in Whitby, that is its official name rather than a nickname.

I rather liked the pub in Tarrington [Herefordshire] which was called the "Glass Pig". Last time I passed I noticed it had reverted to its earlier name of the Tarrington Arms, more traditional I suppose, but somehow less fun.

'Miners' - 'Miner's Lamp' - 'Ramp'?

Irthlingborough (Northants) has the 'Sow & Pigs'. One side of the sign shows a sow with piglets and the other an old method of making cast iron ingots with a main channel (sow) and side channels (pigs), a reference to former local ironworks.

Like Lady Penelope, my father always navigated by pub names. He was a fireman in Essex and the best landmarks, especially at night were the pubs. Where the roads had no names you could say "left at The Royal Oak", then past the Green Man" etc. When Harlow New Town was built all the new pubs were named after butterflies and the signs depicted the butterfly on one side, i.e. The Scarlet Admiral and a suitable picture on the other. The fact that most of the pubs were dreadful to drink in was beside the point.

Further to the Church mentioned by Lady Penelope.
The Church took place every sunday in Bagley's club at Kings Cross - I live on a narrowboat there and it was murder! Every Sunday we had a self imposed curfew from 11am until 1pm and 4pm until c6pm. I know the majority of the users were just being friendly - I found out my nephew had been a visitor when he was in the army; but there was a nasty minority who used to urinate in the gate of the mooring, throw things from the bridge above the canal - once it was a two litre bottle of water, another time I found a half bottle of gin (I think). They shouted abuse and really rude remarks, I also once saw a girl providing sexual relief to her boyfriend (?) on the Bridge on York Road. Eventually the club was moved to the Forum in Kentish Town. I am not averse to drinking and a bit of malarkey - I am know to partake every now and then but it used to be an absolute nightmare!
