Most pubs around here concentrate on food these days, guess they have to in order to survive, hardly any pubs around that dont serve food.
Many of the characters that you used to find in pubs have now shuffled off this mortal coil, they seem to have been replaced with foul mouthed yobs and / or people you would not want to talk to anyway, or just people that want to get pissed and make a nuisance of themselves.
Me I just get silly when pissed and talk a lot, never been a nuiscance drunk.
Yes, I still like a pint (or two) but cannot remember the last time I went to a pub for a drink only.
Since the lockdown, we have only been to a pub 3 times and that was to eat, and I have to be honest I just did not feel relaxed / comfortable.
The way it's heading it's going to be even longer before I venture to the pub again.
Christmas Eve will be a no no this year, probably the first time since I was 18 that I have not been out on Christmas eve.
Feel sorry for all the publicans, its a really crap time for them.
