The petition has achieved the support of 11,000 people who “want the name to stay”, revealed its organiser in an exclusive interview with GB News’ Scotland reporter Davie Donaldson.

Alastair Old said that the company’s move to change the historic name “totally rejects our heritage”.

It is said the pub takes its name from the story of a black female hound that would swim across the loch in Linlithgow carrying food to her master, who sentenced her to death.

Greene King, which has already changed the name of pubs called The Black Boy and The Black’s Head, argues the decision has been taken after a dialogue with the pub’s landlord Nick Mackenzie.
