The Dobblers Inn, Sturton Street
The Dobblers Inn, Sturton Street
According to the Dobblers Inn's own website [LinkExternal link], the pub's name may relate to an old local area called 'Dobblers Hole' which is located roughly in the Beehive / St Matthews Gardens area just behind Sturton Street.

Apparently "some older residents could remember a colourful and eccentric character called Dobbler who kept a large rag and bone yard, renowned for unusual items"; which may be the origin of the pub's sign design.

"A Dobbler" has also become a slang term, "as a person with low standards who lacks motivation" or "someone who consumes other peoples' food and drinks before their own".
