Thanks for visiting.
Walking round Wokingham, I noticed that some of the pubs had put a lot of effort into their pub signs and indeed some of the names are quite unusual. There are umpteen pubs around the town but only those in the centre with jolly signs have been included in my pub crawl!
First off is the Broad Street Tavern, very pretty and covered in flowers. As it is actually in Broad Street, perhaps the name isn't unusual at all.
Round the corner is the Metropolitan.
I couldn't resist this rose in the Rose Street rose garden.
The Roebuck is near the Town Hall.
As is the Red Lion, which is the most popular pub name in the country.
And The Crispin, which has a well kept garden apparently and an Aunt Sally, an old-fashioned stick throwing game, although from its position you wouldn't think there would be room at all.
The Dukes Head's sign has the Duke of Wellington in a Wellington boot.
