    Default Various name corrections

    'Inn' suffix to add The George

    'Inn' suffix to remove:
    The Goat Inn
    The Bull Inn
    The Star Inn
    The Rose & Crown Inn
    Crown Inn
    The Plough Inn
    Honeywell Inn
    The Beehive Inn
    The Cock Inn
    The White Hart Inn
    The Welsh Black Inn
    Blue Anchor Inn
    The White Lion Inn
    Turks Head Inn
    The Angel Inn
    The Poundffald Inn
    Angel Inn
    Crossroads Inn
    The Albion Inn
    George Inn
    The Star Inn
    The Black Boy Inn
    The Bell Inn
    The Curfew Inn
    The White Hart Inn

    Should be 'Bull Inn' - Bull Hotel

    Should be 'The Vine (Bull and Bladder) - The Vine Inn

    Add 'Royal' - Belle Vue Royal Hotel - Belle Vue Hotel

    Should be 'The Metropolitan' - Metropolitan Pub

    Should be 'The Plough' - Plough Inn

    Should be 'The Monachty' - Monachty Arms Hotel

    'Harbour Master' should be 'Harbourmaster' by the looks of it:
    http://aberpubs.blogspot.com/2007/10...ter-hotel.html
    Harbour Master Hotel

    'George' looks like it isn't part of the name:
    The Herbert George Wells (JD Wetherspoon)
    http://www.jdwetherspoon.co.uk/home/...-herbert-wells

    Now called "Danny's Bar" The Seahorse Inn

    On a side note, the Gospoda Gospoda is showing a number of pictures for the old Battle Inn - should these be switched off from showing on the main page? Also, Mannakoo/Jolly Porter - Mannakoo

    Finally - what are the views on 'The'? There are quite a few that either need a 'the' or do not but have one! And, having had a 5 minute scan through my pubs, I have noticed the odd one or two where the name on the building contradicts the pubs sign!

    Anyway, do you think there is any value in me listing all the ones that (as far as I can tell) need 'The' adding or removing? Your call, I'm happy to do it as I am borderline OCD.

    Hi Quinno,

    We have corrected all of those I think.

    We are not interested in hearing about pictures on the summary page as has been stated elsewhere, it is a facility that I am inclined to switch off at this time.

    As to whether or not 'The' should be there we will correct them where mentioned, but really it takes quite a bit of our time to do it and presumably quite a bit of your time to list it, I personally don't think it is worth worrying about as it is time I can be doing things like improving the sites code.

    Fair does, I suspected that might be the answer - thought it worth asking though.

    I have to admit I do them where I notice it doing other work, but to get a big list like this can be a little overwhelming. If there are any that really bother you feel free to mention them though, we do appreciate that you guys are taking time to do it as much as we are.

    There was no explanation for the Bull and Bladder in brackets, none of the photos had Bull and Bladder, and I hate this slow slip into bracketed names that seems to be happening. So I did correct it, to what I could see on the sign.

    I am scared that you are checking them all mind, that is an impressive effort.
