10 Bizarre English Pub Names



The Old Thirteenth Cheshire Astley Volunteer Rifleman Corps Inn is a real tavern in Stalybridge, Cheshire, England. But it's not the strangest name for a bar you'll find in this gallery of ten at DJMick. Link -via Breakfast Links

For these and more odd pub names, see: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/expat/expatpicturegalleries/8878535/Britains-strangest-pub-names.html

Most of those aren't bizarre. Indeed the Crooked Billet is quite a common name for a pub and it just means a bent log or branch. This probably dates to the time when pub signs were often physical objects, the crooked billet in that case just being a branch hung outside the pub.

If you want properly weird names we have a few round here. The Wappy Spring and Nont Sarah's can't be more than two or three miles apart and that's just two.

When I was visiting my a relative on Missouri we passed by a pub (we call them bars here in the states) named "The Glory Hole". I called information to get their phone number. I called them up to ask if they are a gay bar and the bartender said "No".
