Don't you find some of these modern Pub Names annoying?
The "Frog and Blackberry", Pseudo Irish Pubs like "O'Reilly's Retreat" and anything with the word "Firkin" in it? Also those "All Bar One" type designer bars dreamt up by young bar stewards in the advertising agency.
There's nothing wrong with the old pub names but they could probably do with a 21st Century makeover in their signage. I hope you may be able to add some additional suggestions (and I know it was Countrylife and not Anchor - it didn't scan as well!).
