Pub sign, the Roaring Donkey, Albert Street, Swindon
The origin of the name is unclear but this pub was always known as the Roaring Donkey even though its proper name was the Rising Sun. As far as I know donkeys don't roar so the name may be a reference to the well-known condition of being roaring drunk.
