    Arms

    Hello,


    Maybe a little bit exccentric question but I would like to ask somebody in what sense the word Arms is used in names of restaurants, hotels, pubs etc. (The Churchill Arms, The Ruddinghton Arms, The Kings Arms etc). Does it relate to a coat of arms?


    Thank you very much
