mandoleer Folklore: Odd pub names (412* d) RE: Folklore: Odd pub names 11 May 05


The Eels's Foot sounds like a relation of Ormskirk's Snig's Foot.... Some more from Liverpool area - The Boffin (in Kirkby), The Dispensary, The Tenterhook, Gregson's Well, The Lutine Bell, The Philharmonic Dining Rooms (the most fantastically decorated pub you will ever find - well worth a visit if you are in the area - still all original, too), The Mole of Edghill, The Salutation, The Elm House (one in Bootle and one in Anfield!), and The Flat Iron. Lost, I'm afraid, is one of my favourites - Hengler's Circus. Oh, and I nearly forgot The Weighing Machine, and The Volunteer Canteen. One in Crosby, The Edinburgh, doesn't have an unusual name, but has (or at least had) a distinctive nickname. In the days when the teachers from my school used to go to the BS (Blundellsands Hotel - now flats), the sixth form used to nip out to the Bug and Bite knowing we were safe there. End of term, we used to have one in the Liver (rhymes with diver not river), another in the Vollie (see above) and one in the Raven (with a pickled egg there).
