I have a feeling that he did visit this pub on occasion, but that they took the opportunity to get a little publicity by speculating on his buying the pub. That might be based on his son's name as well.
As for India, I think that they just say this because he was there once and now it's also good publicity.
Refer back to my posting "Anyone want to buy a hotel/pub" under off topics. According to that article, the pub's been up for sale for a year with no interested buyers, and that's why it's going to be auctioned off. Apparently, no one is that interested in it.
And, supposedly, PB's son isn't named after Dylan Thomas. Whether it's true or not, he's said it's just a coincidence. He and Keely liked Dylan and they chose Thomas after both of their fathers.

James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan is planning to add to Spanish island Mallorca's list of celebrity locals after reportedly buying a new home there. Local property insiders claim Brosnan has bought a plot of land there and plans to build a holiday retreat.
Brosnan, who became an American citizen three years ago, will join the likes of Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones and Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith, who have holiday homes on the island.

Kennedy, Jr., Jack Black, Sheryl Crow, Larry David, Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Ferrell, Eric Idle, Diane Keaton, Willie Nelson, Meg Ryan will perform and present at 'Earth To L.A.! - The Greatest Show On the Earth' On May 6 in Los Angeles The Evening of Music, Message & Comedy Has Already Raised Over $2.5 Million Dollars To Help Save the Planet
LOS ANGELES, April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- NRDC's (Natural Resources Defense Council) biennial fundraiser "Earth to L.A.! - The Greatest Show on the Earth," featuring Tom Hanks as host and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. as keynote speaker, has emerged as the hottest ticket in town. The irreverent evening of music, message and comedy, to be held on Thursday, May 6 at the Wadsworth Theatre in Los Angeles, sold out in record time. It has also already exceeded NRDC's financial goal by raising over $2.5 million to advance the environmental organization's mission to safeguard the Earth's natural resources; far surpassing previous benchmarks.
"The level of support for this event is truly unprecedented," said NRDC trustee Laurie David, who created "Earth to L.A.!" four years ago. "The entertainment community cares deeply about what is happening to our environment. From the writers, to the talent in the show, to all of the people donating their time to make this event happen -- everyone wants to support NRDC."
"Earth to L.A.!" is designed to raise awareness about environmental problems, particularly global warming. More than 90 cents of every dollar raised from the event will be used for NRDC's programs to protect the planet.
The live show will include standup comedy, musical performances and sharp-edged commentary and appearances by Jack Black, Sheryl Crow, Larry David, Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Ferrell, Diane Keaton, Stephen Colbert, Eric Idle, Willie Nelson and Meg Ryan.
The night also features a "green carpet" celebrity arrival event with some of Hollywood's top talent who are NRDC supporters, including: Toby Maguire, Ben Stiller, Pierce Brosnan, Albert Brooks, Carole King, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tom Ford, Rob Reiner, Rita Wilson, Martin Short, and Mark Burnett.
"We have had tremendous support from great friends, supporters and sponsors including Ralph Lauren Fragrances, who have been instrumental in helping us raise money and awareness for NRDC's critical work," said Elizabeth Wiatt, NRDC trustee and event co-chair. Wiatt co-founded NRDC's Action and Executive Forums, which lobby the government on environmental issues.
Event chairs for "Earth to L.A.!" are Larry David, Cindy Horn, Jim Wiatt and NRDC trustees Laurie David, Alan Horn, Peter Morton and Elizabeth Wiatt. Emmy Award-winning producer Joel Gallen is overseeing production, and Academy Award-nominated designer Michael Riva will once again create the sets. Ralph Lauren Fragrances is the premier sponsor of the event's after-party. Underwriters include Warner Bros., MTV Networks, HBO and Village Roadshow Pictures.
NRDC is making the concert Climate Cool(TM) by purchasing clean power from Vermont-based NativeEnergy, which will offset every ton of global warming emissions generated by the event, including all power for the sound and lights. Clean power proceeds will help build a wind farm on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation in South Dakota and support Northwest wind farms that generate energy without the heat-trapping pollution that causes global warming.
NRDC's lawyers, scientists and policy analysts are often described as the most effective environmental advocates in the nation. NRDC's purpose is to safeguard the Earth, its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends. In 1970, when there were few environmental laws on the books to protect our water, air and wilderness, several leading attorneys identified the need to create a law firm with one client -- the Earth. For over 30 years, NRDC has helped craft, pass and defend some of the nation's key environmental statutes, including the Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act.
NRDC's strategy is to get results using the most effective tools available, whether it's working with the construction industry to promote wood-efficient building techniques, or mobilizing public opinion to force the Environmental Protection Agency to enact stricter guidelines to protect children from harmful chemicals. Today, NRDC has more than 1 million members and online activists nationwide, served from offices in New York, Washington, Santa Monica and San Francisco. For more information visit www.nrdc.org.
Pierce Brosnan's wife Keely Shaye Smith was begging her famous hubby to shave off his mustache, but he flatly refused. He was growing it for a new movie he started shooting in Mexico, in which he plays a hitman who has a nervous breakdown. He felt the facial hair fit the role, but Keely was suffering whisker burns and her skin was breaking out. Guess there was too much kissy-kissy going on.
