    Quite a lot of Liverpool pubs have been named after their landlords - officially or not.
    Perhaps a thread could be started?

    I don't drink much.
    I spill most of it.

    The Dundreary on Wavertree Road near Edge Hill Station was always known as 'The Widow's'. The Queens Arms was known unofficially as The Parifin Oil Shop and now has the name officially and, of course, The Big House is probably the best known these days.

    The Villiers is on the streets ahead page and the pubs page of my site.

    I expect Colin is referring to pubs that are actually called after the proprietor rather than known as.....

    For another few known as pubs...

    The Derby Arms which was on St. Anne Street was known as Pat Molloys.

    The Royal Standard on St. Annes Street was known as Kings.

    The Australian Vaults on Gt Crosshall Street was known as Ma Moores.

    The Egerton's in Cases St. was owned by a fella called Dick Whittingham - this would be around the 50's going into the 60's. My Ma worked there then along with a girl called Muriel (better known as Kiwi) who was from erm... New Zealand.
    Always remember me ma volunteering to wash the pub curtains at home, she put them in the sink and the water ended up like brown ink - that should have been enough to stop me ever smoking.

    The West Derby is still nicknamed Barry's after a former manager.

    The Old Stanley (closed) was know as Dixie's, again after a former manager.

    Oh and a more pertinent to those who worked in United Biscuits when it had more p!ss-heads working there. The Railway on Binns Road was known as Meeting Room 'R' and even displayed an official meeting room sign above the bar in the lounge. Thinking about it, there were loads of meetings, appraisals and interims held in there.

    The Hare and Hounds in Prescot, was always known as Tommy Halls, so popular was the name, that they actually changed the name from The Hare and Hounds to Tommy Halls (Who was once the landlord)

    I remember Pat Molloy very well. I also remember his wife, but I can't recall her name. I worked in Clare's from 1972 until 1977 and we'd go for a drink in Pat's most Friday nights. A Tetley pub. Pat must have been in his late 40s/early 50s black hair but going bald. Always smartly dressed and a friendly man.

    Thanks, Kev.

    Dick Jennings (Mill Street?) pops up on Flickr quite a lot, and that seems to be the official name.
    Must admit I don't know what its original name was.

    I'm sure there was a pub near Birkenhead docks called The Burning Stump.
    So called because the manager had a wooden leg and used to poke the fire with it!

    It was on the Wallasey side, don't know if it is still there it has changed so much. If you went from Birkenhead over the four bridges and turned left it was on the right.

    Ha, yes. it changed to Bonkers in the eighties. It has been set on fire since. It looks like it's waiting to be knocked down now.

    I knew a fella called Red, and he had grey hair. Turns out he used to have fiery red hair. Odd.
