I might have got 27 but I went for Lloyds Bank, even though that was clearly started by a Lloyd.
The Inn on The Green must be a new name for an old pub, still didn't recognise it though.

I know The Inn On The Green was called The New Inns when it was an Ansells House. Lloyds Bank was started in Dale End there is a Blue plaque there.
