    Default pub names - Food

    I though that in these changing times it would be good to discuss food alongside beer.

    I've noticed that there are a lot of pubs where the name relates to Cheshire Cheese and I was wondering if anyone can name more pubs that get their title from specific food stuffs - Please, no fruit!

    I've been to the Melton Mowbray in Holborn which is a Fullers ale and pie house, but unfortunately no mention of pork or jelly!

    Being, strictly speaking, born in Cheshire, I should be, but am not, a fan of the cheese. I'm sorry, but it's just so bland & uninteresting to eat, and useless for cooking with. So, why do these pubs celebrate Cheshire Cheese by adopting the name?

    back to thread - I've been to Melton Mowbray itself & we ate a pie from the butcher's at The Boat - here's a clip of the review "We phoned ahead to check whether we could eat our locally purchased pie here & the guv said no prob, although when we arrived he did admit to having thought we were on a wind-up!"

    So, no foodstuffs pub there, must try harder... How about The Bramley Apple in Southwell? The Golden Pheasant, Biggleswade? Lion & Lobster, Brighton? (lobster was dry but the lion was toothsome...), Pilchard Inn, Burgh Island, Sir Loin of Beef, Southsea, Hare&Billet, Blackheath (tho can't recall having had Hare),

    I hope not many Dogs, Dolphins, Foxes, Swans or Eagles are gonna be quoted?
    I was looking for pubs I've been to, representing food I've eaten, but it's Steve's thread so...

    Blue Vinny, Puddletown http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/9775/

    Went in last month, and although I ate there never spotted any Blue Vinny on the menu, but TBH I was not looking for it, maybe it is part of the "West Country cheese board"?

    How about 'The Dorset Knob' http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/9940/

    ...which isn't what it sounds like.

    Well, there are all the Pheasants of course.

    And (maybe it's even iconic) http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/41691/ in Salisbury.

    and the now closed http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/38281/ in Birmingham.
