What's a Canonical Name?

To simplify searches, each pub on our database has a Canonical Name - usually a shortened version of its full name missing out any common prefixes and suffixes like "The Old", "Inn", "Tavern" and so on.

This means that "The Old Crown", "The Crown Inn" and "Ye Olde Crown Taverne" are known canonically as, simply, "Crown".

We've also dropped the "The", standarised with "and" instead of "&" and in some cases simplified pluralisation.
