We got back from our recent visit to London to find that the new sign outside a refurbished pub had made it to the front page of the local weekly, so despite the 'pub sign challenge' having fizzled out we just had to go and have a look.
It appears that some locals are up in arms at the hint of lèse-majesté (which 'Spitting Image' got away with 20 years ago and Rowlandson 200 years ago): according to the paper lots of them were 'jolly cross'.
The pub owner claims the painting is his mum whose name is Betty; her husband is Phil and she has his name tattooed on her arm.
Approached by the local press, Buck House had no comment to make . . . .
