The Walrus at work Name That Pub (Bar) (73* d) RE: Name That Pub (Bar) 20 May 02


I'm annoyed I got beaten to "The Goat and Compasses" (although I think the name predates the Temperance movement).
Pubs called "The Bull and Bush" often have their origins on inn sites which date back to Henry VIII, "Bull and Bush" being a corruption of "Boulogne Bouche", commemorating Henry's acquisition of the town and harbour(It paid to keep on the right side of Hal).
