The names of English pubs have always fascinated me, mainly because of their inappropriate nature. I spent 65% of my life before the age of 18 in my local pub, which was called ‘The Reindeer’. Looking back, this wasn’t perhaps a very relevant name (I certainyl never saw a Reindeer near my house, except around December 24th…).
More suitable names could have been ‘The Power Station’, ‘The Dirty Stream’ or maybe even ‘The Dirty Duck’.
One of the most famous pub names is ‘The Dog and Duck’, and I always wondered what possible link these two animals had with each other. It took a trip to Beijing to realise how well these guys get on with each other…
What on earth is that dog thinking?
