Some of the Best Pub Names...

You’ll have to excuse the less-than-serious content of this post. Being that it is Saturday, I’m in no mood for anything but the lighthearted. So while blowing off an hour or two this afternoon, I came across this topic.

The English and Irish Isles are a pub-based society. The local watering holes are just another accepted part of their day-to-day culture.  Angelo-Irish Pubs conjures up such archetypical names like the “Rose and Crown Pub” or the “White Horse Tavern”, but there are others out there that are … well, out there. Here’s just a sampling of some great, real pub names that I couldn’t help but get a chuckle from.

Dublin, Ireland

London, England

Stourton, Wiltshire, England

Mayfair, London, England

Bishopsgate, London, England

Swindon, England

Cumbria, England

Cornwall, England

There are plenty more out there, both abroad as well as in the US. Drop us a comment if you’ve got any good ones to share.
