What's In A Pub Name?

The Origins of Pub Names


Royal names have always been popular for pubs, demonstrating the landlord's loyalty to authority. Crowns also feature heavily in heraldry - many coats of arms contain crowns - often in multiples - and when seen in threes this can refer to the arms of The Worshipful Company of Drapers.
