BITE Top Ten Pub NamesEach week we get the odd email from various media outlets asking us some strange questions for whatever article they are currently writing. Time upon time, we get asked ‘What is the most popular pub name in the UK?’ We thought we’d share with you what they are – is your local named the same?

(Some of them might be proceeded with ‘The’ – lots of pubs go by with and without it!)

  1. Red Lion
  2. Royal Oak
  3. White Hart
  4. Rose and Crown
  5. New Inn
  6. White Horse
  7. Crown
  8. Kings Head
  9. Crown Inn
  10. Kings Arms


What does this all mean? Well, if you are a ‘Red Lion’ good luck in getting people to find you in Google! Out of all the pubs on BITE we have 16,283 unique pub names listed – over half of all the pubs we have on the site have a name shared by at least 3 other pubs!
