Thread Name: Contrived Pub names
Subject: RE: Contrived Pub names
That's more like it .I suspected they were there amd Lo! they ARE ....Fatling and Firkin,The Sweyn Forkbeard ,Goat and Boots (sheep shagging?),The Tipsy Toad,The Goat and Compasses,Goose and Firkin - awful.
I wouldn't arrange to meet anyone in any of these pubs as would be embarrassed to place any of these names in sentence.
I liked "Our Mutual Friend" ,though,I suppose they all could be reduced, as in, "I'll see you at the Friend".
Mikefule triggered a memory with Dew Drop In.
I remember doing a gig many years ago near Bolton as I recall, at a place called the Last-Drop Inn.
So what you say ? Not very outstanding, well, the hotel ( and a tiny complex) was owned by Pierrepoint ( was it Albert?), who was as most of you will know ,was Britains last official Hangman - and still is, for all I know !!!.
