    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 Clubmoor pub is known as the Titch.

    years ago it was also known as the Greyhound.
