The Bunk Inn derived its name from the habit of local workers, mainly from the nearby brickworks, ‘bunking’ off work early for a drink. The pub was previously called The New Inn. The term ‘to bunk off’ or ‘to do a bunk’ is of indefinite origin but is thought to derive from people absconding from work, school or home, escaping from capture or punishment, or merely hiding from detection. Many would hide in the bunks of rural barns or, in more extreme cases, actually flee to sea, where they’d sleep in bunk beds.
