mandoleer Folklore: Odd pub names (412* d) RE: Folklore: Odd pub names 10 May 05

Halsall area seems to have a minor thing abour Moors - there's a main road called Blackamoor Lane and (not in it) a pub called The Saracen's Head. Litherland has The Salt Box, which was originally the St Catherine's Hotel until the management bowed to local custom.
In Leyland, it was a thing about stars. There was The Seven Stars, The New Seven Stars, The Old Seven Stars, The Original Seven Stars and a couple of other versions of Seven Stars. Used to be a pub there that served the biggest range of cocktails I've ever seen, and which had a Sri Lankan guitarist accompanying the groups that played there - pub was The Leyland Tiger, after the buses of course. Long gone now, though.
