Offering 10,000 pub names from all over the United Kingdom, this guide offers information on the origins, meanings, history, and associations of each name, providing a treasure-trove of lore for the traveler and pub-goer alike. There are the popular pub names that have acquired an almost proverbial quality, such as Royal Oak, Red Lion, and Kings Head, as well as unusual names, including the Thirsty Kipper (Port Erin), the SwingingSporran (Runcorn), and the Five Miles from Anywhere, No Hurry (Upware).

In addition, there are many pub puns, favorites such as Dew Drop Inn, Nobody Inn, Inn Between, and, perhaps most appropriate of all, Stagger In. All pub entries for amusing and uncommon names include locations so that weary travelers can easily stagger in for refreshment, even if they think they are five miles from anywhere.
