GUEST,Barrie Roberts Folklore: Odd pub names (376* d) RE: Folklore: Odd pub names 13 Sep 05


Has Reading still got the 'Jack of Both Sides'?

Bilston, West Midlands, has a pub universally known as 'The Trumpet' despite the fact that its name is actually the 'Royal Exchange'. Rumour says it used to be called 'The Angel' and bore a sign with an angel blowing a horn. This led to it being nicknamed 'The C**t and Trumpet'. Who knows?

Then there was the white horse who went into a pub for a drink. The landlord served him a beer and said, 'It's funny you coming in here'.

'Why?' asked the horse.

'Well, the pub's named after you'.

'Really -- that's extraordinary. Why did someone call a pub "Eric"?'
