I'm certainly glad that the Six Jolly Fellowship Porters was recognized in that list of famous pubs in literature, but it wouldn't be hard to put together a top ten list of pubs from Dickens' own works. Just off the top of my head, in additon to the Six Jolly there are the Maypole from Barnaby Rudge, the Blue Dragon from Martin Chuzzlewit, the George and Vulture from Pickwick Papers and the Golden Cross from David Copperfield (the scene of David's fateful meeting with Steerforth). You could round out the rest of the top ten without looking farther than Pickwick Papers - the White Hart, the Marquis of Granby, the Peacock, the Magpie and Stump, the Bull Inn, and the Great White Horse. I do believe Pickwickians must have lodged at half the pubs in England during their travels!
