The number of entries into the naming competition for the former British Legion, then Rutland Sports and Social Club has staggered us at Castle Rock Brewery. We received ideas from 400 people with about 650 suggestions.
After much deliberation and fierce debate it has been decided to call the new pub ‘The Poppy and Pint’. It is an ideal name as it preserves the memory of the building’s tradition which we feel is very important. At the same time there is a certain ring to it. You will be able to pop into the ‘Poppy’ for a pint!
