This sign has a portrait of Queen Elizabeth I who was known as the Virgin Queen, as she never married. It is at least the third sign the pub has had in the last 20/25 years or so. The previous one was a close-up of the Queen holding up a pair of grapes. The sign prior to that was actually of her half-sister Queen Mary, popularly known as Bloody Mary for her enthusiasm for having Protestants burned at the stake. There is a tale that the pub was first known as the Virgin Mary Tavern, because it was built on land which was possibly the site of a Roman Catholic presbytery, but the authenticity of this is unknown.

This sign is on a post at the side of the car park. The pub also has a similar sign attached to the wall of the pub fronting Tolladine Road.
