    I think this thread was meant to be for official pub signs, i.e. the hanging signs that illustrate the pub's name. There's another thread for Pub notices which intrigue and amuse, which I've bumped up the forum by copying Hondo's link about the miles per gallon.

    I recently walked 10 miles from Buttermere to Cockermouth, where I had a refuelling stop at The Swan Inn. If I'd known about this "2.5 miles per day on half a pint" malarkey I wouldn't have asked for a half of Jennings Dark Mild - obviously what I needed was a quart.

    Nice one! Took me a few seconds to spot the facial expressions on the key hasps.

    On a technical point, do you use software to get the pub sign squared up in the photo frame, or are you just a fantastically skillful photographer?

    Also curious to know. Personally I use Photoshop to square it up sometimes, http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubpictures/54396/ april 2011, or just leave it against the background as taken from ground level

    I think this isn't far from the mark - her pics do seem to be among the better ones we have (and completely put my mobile phone snaps to shame).

    Sorry about the delay in replying to this post.
    It is quite rare that I can manipulate a photograph such as a pub sign so that it is entirely straight, so yes I rely on the photographers friend Photo Shop! A fairly obvious tip when photographing pub signs, is to be aware of shadows from the sun, I try to avoid photographing signs, with shadows cast upon them. I confess to visiting The Cross Hands on two occasions, the first was a really dull day, but I was able to get a reasonable photo of the sign, I enhanced the brightness and contrast, so the details of the design were sharper. I couldn't use the photograph of the pub sign from my second visit, because of a shadow masking some of the details.
