This quiz has received an Editor's Award for excellent content. Only the most unique and well written quizzes are eligible for this award.

PubNames Photo OK, we know we're supremely lucky in England (and other bits of the UK!) to have our unique institution - the pub.
No other bars in any other country even approach the ambiance and the whole institution of the 'local'. And, of course, in few other places can you get our beautiful English warm flat beer on draught!
But also interesting are the pubs' names.
Apart from some atrocious modern inventions ("The Slug & Lettuce" for Gawd's sake!), pubs' names are truly ancient institutions, going back centuries - as often do, also, the pubs themselves.
My own local, for instance, has 1400s walls and an historic name to match.
This quiz is just an alcoholic ramble around some of our more common pub names and asking you where you think they originated.
Even Brits may not know the origins of many of our pub names, so all you colonials need fear no disadvantage!
Maybe you won't score well, but the answers may interest you.
And if you have a pint at each question, you'll be doing rather well anyway!
