GUEST,Mr Happy Folklore: Odd pub names (412* d) RE: Folklore: Odd pub names 13 Sep 05

echoing some of the sentiments raised above, it's a great pity & an affront to 'traditional' British pubs [and thier customers] that many of them suffer trendy alterations to not just the name, but also to the very fabric of the buildings- additional eating areas, extensions,adding huge tables to small rooms so there's hardly space to move, losing real ales to be replaced by watery, insipid chemical 'brews'.

one of the greatest tragedies of all being the change of use of pub premises.

in Chester where i live, there's 'the Old Nag's Head' in town which has been incorporated over the last 20 or so years as part of Boots chemists, & there's the Old Oak opposite which is part of Dixons.

in other parts of the area, 'Ye Olde Wheatsheaf' is an antiques emporium.

anyone similar experiences up their way?
