What makes for a good pub?

It’s those "Irish theme pubs" that get my goat. About as Irish as a Babycham.

Wakefield, West Yorks.
Rather not. I was very nearly shaken and stirred before I left.

Good one

That would be funny were it not for the fact that a certain wayward young relative of mine said just that about me to "show me off" to the locals…"This is my cousin who works for MI5."

This particular pub attracts a rather motley array of miscreants and jailbirds and they all believed him…

…conversation stopped. Heads turned. Eyes pierced me. I feared for my life expectancy. I haven’t been in since. Neither has he. Nor will do again.

Oh dear, I do hope you got to finish your Vodka Martini (shaken not stirred) before you left.

Where I live I can name about a dozen pubs I simply wouldn’t go in period.

As to which ones … depends who’s in and who I’m with.

Preferably a village pub, with enough rooms to cater for all tastes. My favourite one has a snug, with darts; a games room with billiards; a small dining room for parties, then a large room with log fires where anything else can take place, and both restaurant meals and pub grub. It also has its own brewery, so there’s a choice of drinks to sample…There’s a garden, with a marquee, and plenty of benches- and views of high peaks.
The dress code is simple- leave muddy boots in the porch…

Banning smoking was the thing for me. Pretty much given up on them until the ban came in. No juke box or games machines. Don’t mind the TV if the sound is off. Mainly visit now for food, so that’s a must.

Well kept real ale for a start….No juke box or TV. Open fire in winter and friendly locals. Any other requisits?
