GUESS THE PUB CROSSES THE POND

Ah, but which pond ?

The Pond” by Lowry ?

Well, no, that’s Stockport. This should give it away;

Only a Yank would eat bread like that, surely ?

I’m a bit tired of you lot using “Reverse Image” technology to identify these pubs, so the map extracts get tougher now.

This pub is in a city known for this,

and this.

While our pub serves beer from a brewery started the year Rutland got its independence back.

Talking of independence, this guy should steer you to our boozer’s name.

Good luck; don’t take all day.

    1. Only if Doom Bar is the booby prize!!

      If the stout gentleman, in that 18th Century portrait, is the person I think he is, then I can probably guess the name of the pub. But unless it’s located in Richmond VA, Cleveland or Amherst Ohio, the chances are I won’t have been in it.

  1. The portrait is familiar from all those $100 bills in my wallet (not). Never been across that particular pond and no intention to ever change that.

    They have pubs?

  2. I can’t recognize it, and I’ve lived on this side of the pond all my life. Just goes to show I need to get out more often.

    The stuff they’ve got hanging from the ceiling looks like an art installation; that alone make me question its credentials as a real pub. But hey, we throw the word “pub” around very liberally over here, no denying it!

    1. Who in US history was notorious for their pardons ? He’s from this city and has a street named after him.

      What do you call the gentleman in the picture ? There’s your brewpub.

      No-one has got this despite more view than any other Guess the Pub, oddly.

      1. Just too many pubs named after that guy on the $100 bill. Here’s one in Philly that closed in May 2019: Saint Benjamin Brewing Co. in Kensington https://www.google.com/maps/@39.9772776,-75.1434292,3a,42.6y,280.05h,89.96t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sdhRQtIMio4Z6i2o-YuNlEg!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo3.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DdhRQtIMio4Z6i2o-YuNlEg%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D135.84178%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i16384!8i8192

        Looks like you’re going to have to drink that bottle of Doom Bar yourself this time. I’m beat.

      2. Or there’s the Franklin D Roosevelt Oirish Pub at 63 Avenue Franklin Delano Roosevelt in Paris. That’s Paris, France, just the other side of La Manche. Or Le Franklin Roosevelt just a few doors down at No.55.

  3. “GUESS THE PUB CROSSES THE POND”

    Since I didn’t see any badges or pins in Canada I’m going to start with the US of A.

    “Ah, but which pond ?”

    In the photo above the person on the left is wearing something by ‘The North Face’. So, yup, North America. πŸ˜‰

    “Only a Yank would eat bread like that, surely ?”

    Or food that is just begging for a heart attack. πŸ™‚

    “Talking of independence, this guy should steer you to our boozer’s name.”

    That’s Ben Franklin. While he was born in Boston (?) he died in Pennsylvania so, with Independence mentioned, it has to be Philadelphia.

    As before, I’m happy if I can get it narrowed down to the actual city. πŸ™‚

    Cheers

      1. Well there’s plenty to go at here –

        “Benjamin Franklin FRS FRSA FRSE (January 17, 1706 [O.S. January 6, 1705][Note 1] – April 17, 1790) was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. A polymath, he was a leading writer, printer, political philosopher, politician, Freemason, postmaster, scientist, inventor, humorist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat. As a scientist, he was a major figure in the American Enlightenment and the history of physics for his discoveries and theories regarding electricity. As an inventor, he is known for the lightning rod, bifocals, and the Franklin stove, among other inventions.[1] He founded many civic organizations, including the Library Company, Philadelphia’s first fire department,[2] and the University of Pennsylvania.[3]”
