Dinner at a quaint Scottish themed pub had me thinking of @arthurchappell all through the evening and on our return to the car, I just had to take a mobile photo of the sign hanging outside the Royal St Andrews Hotel and Spa in Port Alfred, SA. I think this is the first pub sign I have ever actually seen in real. The food was delicious and a wonderful warm atmosphere in the low white ceilings of this Highlander Pub. So Arthur - I have one to my collection now!

I think we have no pubs in Switzerland, but we had several in the south of France. British came vacationing in Cannes and Nice many years ago.

@Inlemay Yes, I remember that there were several British pubs, complete with outside signs.

I will have to seek out a pub with a sign on my next trip to Portland, OR. There are many breweries there, but I did not notice any pub signs.

Years ago, I looked at a series on television called The Highlander.

Pretty cool pub sign. I used to see them all the time in my drinking days.
