Three Frogs, 222 London Road, Wokingham, Berkshire

Wokingham pub history index

Although this public house was once a private house known by the name of Frog Hall, it has been so much altered, particularly in recent years, that it is hard to see any thing of the original building. Although it has been called the Three Frogs for over two hundred years, no one has yet been able to conclusively find out the origin of this name. The most plausible suggestion is that the name was derived from Frog Hall. In turn the hall was thought to have been named after the animals themselves, which abounded in the area because of its former boggy nature.
By 1823 it was owned by Haywards Brewery. *
