Pubs - for me - are an important part of my English lifestyle, and are also important within a community, especially coming from a village on a small island. My village has three pubs. Well three pubs and a restaurant. And it depends on where you live, and what you do in the village as to which pub you go to. And that's generally how it is in my experience...everywhere.

The local where I used to live in London, well I had two, had really good food and were pretty chic, gastropubs you might say. However the two locals I frequent on the Island are of an older style, still good food but typical 'pub grub'. In one there's the chance to play a bit of pool, or maybe darts. Or perhaps watch the old guy fall asleep at the bar, if that tickles your fancy. In the other local I always seem to be there for the folk groups practise with their violins and strummed guitar chords. Sometimes I've eaten free chips because the Bridge group were low in numbers, and we've had to stop our conversations before to wait for the cyclists with their cycling shoes to clip-clop off of the floorboards.

Pubs. Just good round places to sit, relax and have a chinwag. End of.
