YOUR CUT-OUT-AND-KEEP PUBMEISTER PUB SIGN CALENDAR

I read all of Pubmeister’s 2020 posts yesterday; he really is a master of brevity and the quirky photo, isn’t he ? All his blog needs is a few acts of wonton public urination, pub cats and deep fried haggis recommendations and he could really boost his profile in Russia.

Being taller than BRAPA, Duncan is also good at capturing classic British pub signs. Without unnecessary words, here’s a dozen top signs; you can make them into a nice calendar. Actually, get a child to do it; they’re not doing much at the moment.

Runcorn (I guess)

Whitwick (NOT Coalville as promised, as Duncan was clearly too frit to enter the Rutland & Warrington !).

Ludlow

Ashendon

Halesowen

Drayton

Burston

Shadforth

Biggin

Ashbourne

Nag’s Head, Bishops Stortford

Oh, and a prize to Duncan for the most well-thumbed Beer Guide of the year.

  1. I love a good pub sign but hadn’t appreciated I’d posted that many. The one that spans the road is of course Ashbourne. Very creative Mr T and not once did I have the undoubted pleasure of your company. Just glad these aren’t reciprocal otherwise I would need to re-read the 1,312 blogs you posted in-year. At this rate I will have plenty of time to resume that chronological Good Beer Guide series.

  2. Lovely photographs and a nice reminder of happier times.
    Twice the ESB was drinking well in the Drayton Court.
    I remember on seeing the Green Man and Blacks Head as a young child thinking that probably only the Red, White and Blue had more colours named on its sign.
    A group of about twelve of us had a meal in the Greyhound at Burston on the last day of February last year. One has since died.

    1. Thanks.
      I remember Ashbourne from a coach trip to Dovedale and Featherstone from the front upper deck seats of a Wolverhampton bus so, being before my father got car in 1961, i would probably have been aged five.

  3. Thanks Martin – in another life I used to drive through Ashbourne a couple of times most weeks, and that sign always gave a little lift.

    I’ve generally thought that pub names are seldom disrespectful whatever they are, any more than “The Farmer’s Arms” would be an affront to farmers, although our ideas about polite language – and about cartoon heads – might change to make them seem so, perhaps.

    For my money if it’s OK with Lenny Henry then it’s good enough for me – don’t know if it is, mind.

    Really? I may try that on Sunday.
    (I can’t do that with you, obviously) 😉

    “All his blog needs is a few acts of wonton public urination, pub cats and deep fried haggis recommendations and he could really boost his profile in Russia.”

    Hmm. So…

    – BRAPA for the first,
    – Mudgie for the second
    – no idea for the third and;

    Are Russians really that gullible? 😉

    “you can make them into a nice calendar”

    The only calendar I need right now is something to record when the bloody workers working on my bloody man shed/pub will get the bloody thing done!
    (logging the hours they show up and leave to ensure they don’t over charge) 😉

    As for the signs, all I can say is that the one for the Waterloo Inn reminds me of this:

    (2:03:25) if it doesn’t work right)

    “Oh, and a prize to Duncan for the most well-thumbed Beer Guide of the year.”

    (slow golf clap!)

    Cheers
