Bonecruncher Contrived Pub names (75* d) RE: Contrived Pub names 04 May 07

In Bournemouth two adjacent pubs were knocked into one and renamed "The Goat and Compasses". Wadworths, the brewers, were trying to get away from the old names, the Pembroke Arms aand the Pembroke Shades, which had become synominous with the drug-taking community.
The name was the winner in a competition for the brewery's workers.

In Wiltshire, near Melksham, is "The Tipsy Toad".
