[Comments] (5) English Pub Names: By me and Rachel. Presented free of charge.

There were a bunch more that I don't remember; maybe Rachel does. Searching reveals two of these to be actual pub names.

Which two? I am guessing 1 and 4

I'd guess the last two, myself.

This country is full of pubs named "The King's Arms" or "The King's Head" or similar. I've been struck by the desire to open a pub named "The King's Feet" or "The King's Rump".

I would say....#3 and #4. I'm not sure that a small business owner would put "damned" or "unready" in reference to the name of their pub.

The last one is a maybe, but I can't find "boadicea" in the os-x dictionary. Maybe its a derivitive of bodice...

Gah! The above was me ^^^^

I didn't intend for this to become a guessing game so I'll just reveal the answers: it's Edward the Confessor (apparently a fairly tough pub that was closed down in 2006) and the Queen Boadicea, a more posh local.
