Elephant Castle Castle St This has been a common pub name for centuries. It is tempting to connect it with the phrase 'an Englishman's home is his castle', a phrase which has been in use since the seventeenth century, but it is more likely to refer to either - a. Coventry Castle. b. the castle in the City Coat of Arms. c. a simple visual sign, easy to illustrate and easy for patrons to recognise. Before 1868 and from 1879 this was known as the ELEPHANT AND CASTLE.
