Sign for the Black Bull
Sign for the Black Bull
The colour black is a very common colour as far as pub names are concerned occurring in at least fifty different names.

It has been suggested that some 'black' names came about when the Gin Act of 1736 came into force, causing tavern owners to drape their signs in black velvet or add 'black' to the pub name.

Perhaps in view of this colour's association with mourning and other rather dreary states of mind, it is surprising that so many names make use of it.
