On the right here. Link The pub website states that the pub is named after Saint Julian the Hospitaller.

Saint Julian is a popular saint in Western Europe. According to the legend, he was a nobleman who through a mistake of identity killed his own father and mother. As penance, he and his wife travelled to Rome as pilgrims seeking absolution.

On his way home he went with his wife to live near a river ford (depicted here) where they gave help to travellers, building a refuge to care for the poor and sick and rowing travellers across the river for free.

At various times, Julian has been honoured as the Patron Saint of innkeepers, hospitallers, pilgrims, ferrymen, boatmen, fiddlers and wandering musicians. St Julian is thus an ideal choice for a pub name.
