Still Waters Posted July 3, 2022 #1 Share Posted July 3, 2022 (IP: Staff) · Inn is out. Bar, on the other hand, is very much in. Traditional pub names are on the decline, a reflection of the problems facing licensees and the success of the craft brewing boom. Data from the Food Standards Agency shows there were 103 fewer licensed establishments with “Inn” in the name in 2022 compared with 2020 – the biggest faller. “Arms” was also down by 49, while “Bar” was up by 119 and “Tap” up by 48. Analysis of more than 51,000 licences over the two-year period, collected by GetTheData.com, an open source data website, reveals that words associated with traditional names were most on the decline: Royal, Crown, Lord, Prince, Greyhound, Horse, Coach and Duke. Britain had about 55,000 pubs in the 1980s, according to the Campaign for Real Ale, but that figure has fallen to 47,500. https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2022/jul/03/inn-is-out-as-locals-favour-bar-and-tap-for-new-pub-names 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
