I like the name. I just backtracked on your posts to see if there was an explanation, and indeed there is. I was actually imagining a large circular piece of Cheshire cheese with a hole in the middle, but never mind, a canal route is still good!

It looks just like I would imagine it to look.

A lot of Pubs are getting makeovers here, like getting outdoor areas for the smokers (banned indoors), heard it said that some pubs were having a struggle over that way.

Why are so many British Pubs painted yellow? We have more yellow pubs here than any other . The smoking ban has had a strange effect, some do better some not so. I too would have assumed like Ruby Cheshire Ring would be Cheese related.

It took me a while to understand what a 'public house' was. So that's where 'pub' came from! Cool! Learn something new everyday :)

Best place to be in tis cold weather is inside these walls. The cold we are experiencing should help a few more smokers to give up. Love finding the traditional pubs of London and learning about their history.

Re: Babooshka's comment -- Maybe the yellow draws people in, looks inviting. This one looked inviting to me, at least until I read some of the earlier commentary. I'm not the rough pub type.
