The London Pub, London Picking up briefly on Pete’s comment on the inn in Hendon called The Hendon, I agree that any pub named after the town where it is located is bound to be trouble. However, I have no facts to back this up – as I have never been to such a pub and they appear to be rarer than you would expect.

It’s a long shot but has anyone been to any of the following?

Bristol Tavern, Bristol
The Nottingham Arms, Nottingham
The Birmingham Arms, Birmingham
The Liverpool, Liverpool
Sheffield Arms, Sheffield
The Oxford Blue, Oxford
The Cambridge Blue, Cambridge

There seems to be no Manchester Tavern in Manchester. The appallingly-named Canterbury Tales is in Gillingham, so it thankfully doesn’t count.
