Pub Signs: The Pig and Whistle, Hertfordshire, England

I have only ever come across three pubs called the Pig & Whistle. This one in Hertfordshire. The second at Cartmel in the Lake District. And the third was Ted Ray's local in his long running radio show (on the 'wireless'): 'Ray's a Laugh'.

The Owl and Pussycat, claiming to be the original one of that name — we don't know with what justification — is a large pub on the northern fringe of the East Midlands city of Leicester.
