THE PUBS





A BEGINNERS GUIDE TO THE PUBS.
YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE PUBS. YOU SEE, THEY POLARISE PEOPLE. AND THIS BLOG IS ALL ABOUT THE PUBS. SO THIS WILL MAKE NO SENSE WHAT SO EVER, IF WE DON'T COVER THE BASES. SO HERE GOES..

MUSIC: THERE ISN'T ANY. THE BREWERY KEEPS PRICES DOWN ON THE BEER BY NOT HAVING A MUSIC LICENSE. IT'S NICE TO BE IN A PUB AND BE ABLE TO HEAR WHAT THE PEOPLE ON THE NEXT TABLE OR YOUR FRIENDS ARE ACTUALLY SAYING. SO NO MUSIC.
YOU CAN GO TO A DISCOTECH FOR ALL THAT STUFF..

BEER: "I'LL HAVE A PINT OF STELLA PLEASE".. NO YOU BLOODY WON'T. THE PUBS ONLY SELL SAMUEL SMITH BEER AND SPIRITS. NOTHING ELSE. I HAVE LOST COUNT OF THE AMOUNT  
PEOPLE WHO WALK IN, ORDER FOSTERS, COMPLAIN THEY DON'T HAVE IT, STAY FOR A BEER AND WHEN THEY RECEIVE THEIR CHANGE, STAY FOR ANOTHER. THE WAY TO A MANS HEART IS CHEAP BEER. SAMUEL SMITH KNOWS THIS ONLY TO WELL..






PEOPLE: THE PUBS HAVE A VARIETY OF ALL WALKS OF LIFE. THINK CHEAP BEER, YOU GET EVERYONE. STUDENTS (LOADS), HIPSTERS, MIDDLE AGED COUPLES, EVERYBODY.
BUT... I HAVE SEEN LOADS OF MEN WHO LOOK LIKE THE BEASTIE BOYS IN THE 'SABOTAGE' VIDEO. SHIRTS, TIES, STRANGE FACIAL HAIR.... THEY SEEM TO BE IN ALL OF THEM. WHY? I DON'T KNOW MATE...
THE ABOVE PICTURE IS NOT THE BEASTIE BOYS, IT WAS THREE GUYS I MET IN THE 'BRICKLAYERS ARMS' LAST SUNDAY. THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN AS THEY WERE LEAVING TO GO TO THE 'JOHN SNOW'.. THE CHAP IN THE GLASSES AND TIE BOUGHT ME A TADDY. THANKS...


PHOTOS: THEY ALL HAVE PHOTOS ON THE WALL, ALL OF THEM. MOSTLY OF DOGS, HORSES AND FAMOUS DEAD PEOPLE FROM THE LAST COUPLE OF 100 YEARS. THINK 'CHARLES DICKENS', THINK 'LEWIS CARROL'.... NOT ELVIS PRESLEY OR MALCOLM McCLAREN...


TRADITION: THE PUBS ARE ALL MOSTLY VERY TRADITIONAL AND THAT'S THE CHARM IT HOLDS FOR MOST PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO DRINK IN THEM. THEY HAVE LOW LIGHTING, ALWAYS IMPRESSIVE WOODWORK AND THE NAMES ARE ALWAYS THE ORIGINAL NAME OF THE PUB. THE BREWERY REVERTS NAMES IN CASES WHERE THEY HAVE BOUGHT A PUB THATS HAD A NAME CHANGE. THE ROBERT BROWNING WAS CHANGED BACK. IT WAS BEFORE THEN CALLED 'THE EAGLE'.....

AND THERE YOU HAVE IT. WE CAN PROCEED THE THE REVIEWS NOW....
