Bear and Bacchus, Stoney Stanton Road

Alternative Addresses:Red House Road, New Road
The bear is the emblem of Warwickshire and Bacchus was the Roman god of wine. Why join the two together in this name? Is it a corruption of Bear & Bacculus, a bacculus being Latin for a stick or staff or is it a conflation of Bear and Ragged Staff and Beer and Bacchus? Our first reference is in 1800, when the Bear and Bacchus was to let. Its location was given as near to the Folshill House of Industry. In 1864 this inn was selected by the Inspector of Weights and Measures as the place for local traders to bring their weights and measures to be checked.
