Collecting Pub Names, part 3

Here is the third portion of my collection of pub names which I gathered during a one month trip through England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales in 1999.  You can read the first portion and an introductory note here: Pub Names Part One and the second portion here: Pub Names Part Two.  My favorites in this portion are, Bird I’ The Hand, The George, and The Glebe.  What’s a Glebe?  And why don’t we name our homes, our front and back yards, our gardens?  (Oh, wait, some of us do name our gardens.)

About literarylee

I sling words for a living. Always have, always will. Some have been interesting and fun; most not. These days, I write the fun words early in the morning before the adults are up and make me eat my Cream of Wheat.
