In The Silver Thaw, Tom takes Amelia to The Lamb and Garter for what passes for a date. Not much is said about it but I did wonder how such a name came to be. What do lambs have to do with garters...and vice versa. Evidently, I'm not the only one who thinks Pub Names have a certain silly mash-up quality to them. Meet the Random Pub Name Generator. I've come up with:
The Flute and Bricklayer
The Green Donkey
The Barrel's Llama
The Bull and Rose
Or here's a list of Pub Names that should exist but don't:
Fleas! Fleas! Fleas!
The Weeping Sore
The Cricketers Box
The Wookie's Nook (okay, I love that one)
But they can't beat the real thing:
The Hung, Drawn and Quartered Pub
The Roaring Donkey
The Bucket of Blood
The Drunken Duck
So, if you could be the proprietress of a pub, what would you name it?
