Strange Pub Names

Recommended Posts

... the **** Inn, at Oughtibridge has nothing to do with what I thought it was to do with. It's about a chicken![.

 

No. The CockInn refers to the cockhorses which were kept there.

"A horse added to a team of horses to assist a wagon through high water or over difficult terrain".

That's interesting about the Bull & Mouth. I remember that pub very well and never knew that. Another interesting fact I found out about pub names, the **** Inn, at Oughtibridge has nothing to do with what I thought it was to do with. It's about a chicken!

How about this one?

"The Quiet Woman", at Earl Sterndale, in Derbyshire.

 

Rather an unusual name for a pub - and rather a controversial pub sign too! I'm surprised the Feminazi haven't complained about it before now?

 

 

I love the caption "Soft words turneth away wrath". Indeed they do.

I remember when working on the railway south of Doncaster there was the Packet Inn which appropriately appeared to have closed down.

There was a pub with the nickname 'Swingers' (not sure which context it was used) in Sheffield city centre, However I cannot remember its proper name or exact location

I know of a pub in the Philippines which is grossly misnamed 'The Temple of a Thousand Virgins'

This is a result of some spotty Herbert putting forward a stupid name to replace what must have been a normal pub name.

A favourite pub in Grimesthorpe was called the WHO CAN TELL anyone know how it got the name ???

This pub was named after a horse that won a race or won the last held race at the Crookesmoor racecourse, now sadly gone.

There is a pub on the Chesterfield to Mansfield road called "The Young Vanish." Apparently there was a racehorse of that name in the 19th century.

In 1978 there was a Frog and Nightgown on the Old Kent Road, London.

The Jervis Lumb and the hen & chickens always feel quite unique

The Jervis Lumb was named after the after area where it was built, it's not a made up name and as for the Hen & Chickens, well that speaks for itself.
