The Death of the British Pub?

So as much as I have heard about so many pubs closing in the UK, I did not witness many issues whilst I was there. Yes they serve more food and some pubs have clearly got a bit carried away with the amount of space set aside for dining, but overall I was surprised at how many great pubs were still around. I’m sure there is a real problem in the UK, but I was just pleased to visit so many great pubs whilst there. I know if I still lived in England I’d go out way more than I do now. As they say in Sweden: “Man saknar inte kon förrän båset är tomt.” (You don’t know what you got till it’s gone.) So if I was in the UK now I’d start going to the pubs way more because life without British Pubs is not worth contemplating! Are you hearing me Consul?
