Customer Review

on 25 January 2008
Most of this book is simply the repetition of the very frequently inaccurate writings of previous authors on pub sign origins. The Fitzwarrens, for example, did NOT have the right to licence inns and alehouses, and this is therefore NOT why so many pubs are called the Chequers. John of Gaunt was one of the most unpopular men in England, and his use of a red lion is NOT why so many pubs are called the Red Lion ... and so on.
