UK’s favourite pub names revealed as nearly half of Brits dream of opening their own boozer

FOUR in 10 Brits dream of running their own pub – and even have a name lined up – with The Royal Oak topping the list of names for the local.

Research of 2,000 adults who go to a pub revealed that 41 per cent are already considering the name of their future establishment.

And for those in need of some inspiration in the name stakes, a “My Pub Builder” generator has been developed to not only determine the ideal name – but also bring your dream pub to life visually.

The tool was developed by Star Pubs & Bars and draws inspiration from the UK’s favourite pub names.

The Moon Under the Water and The White Hart followed The Royal Oak as the second and third most popular options.

Hance McPherson from the pub chain, said: “For many, our local pub is a cherished escape from daily life, so it’s no wonder so many people dream of being in charge and running their very own pub.”

Aspiring publicans also envision offering an array of features at their dream establishment, including quiz nights (44 per cent), live music (44 per cent) and community fundraising events (27 per cent).

While 13 per cent would like to put on a vegan menu – with respondents in Wales and London most likely to offer this.

And one in 10 would put in old-school arcade machines and half would insist on having a spacious beer garden for summer months.

Despite these desires, concerns about potential costs (37 per cent) and lack of experience (43 per cent) pose barriers to pursuing the dream of running their own pub.

Hance McPherson from Star Pubs & Bars, which provides training and support to those looking to make the dream a reality added: “Is becoming a pub licensee truly within reach? Definitely.

“We want to help motivated individuals to build their dream hospitality careers.

Pub sells ‘cheapest pints in the UK’ going for just £2.30 – almost HALF the average

“We focus on supporting people that have the vision and transferable skills to turn their ambitions into a reality.”
