How long before a trendy coffee shop with a rude name?

...if you press it, they will come.

With the historic Elephant & Castle pub connection gone, surely consideration should be given to renaming the area?

I have a suggestion for a name that would bring everything together: the last E & C pub site, the character of the 'regenerated' area, the experience of searching for reasonably-priced housing, and finally the pub names genre.

The Foxton and Goose-Chase.

Surely great news if you own (or lease) a piece of the Elephant?

The name comes from an old coaching inn, which is long gone. I certainly won't miss the Elephant and Castle pub...
Regarding the name: how about Newington? or just Elephant?

Well don't often post but..

How many people can claim this is your much loved local?
Have you ever visited this pub?
It has always been really awful, reminds me of an rundown bar in Runcorn shopping centre.
I have lived here over 20 years, not far from this bar and its been nothing but trouble. Because its called The Elephant and Castle does that make it special!.Think again its on the ground floor of an ex government social security building which really is a blot on the elephant and castle, should have been demolished years ago.
