A Display of Restaurant Heraldry
The Pound at One Pound Lane in Canterbury is a restaurant with a twist; it is located in what used to be a police station complete with jail cells.
I can't give you a review of the food or service there; while we looked into the restaurant upstairs (walking past and checking out some of the jail cells where you can also eat on our way there), we were just looking for a quick bite before heading back to the hotel to get some sleep, and the food there was going to be more filling than we wanted.
Nonetheless, I did get some photos of their logo, an unusual version of quartered arms on a shield:
They are clearly playing off the history of the venue, what with the portcullis, keys, and halberds, as well as the Union flag.
It's not quite heraldry, but it's an eye-catching logo for a restaurant located in an interesting, and historical, venue.
