Excellent article here from Chris Maclean.
I have a real affection for traditional pubs. Pubs that understand their origins. Pubs that understand their role within their communities. Pubs that preserve and maintain the tradition while others seek short term gains.Well said that man!
Give me a proper pub where I can have a conversation with people without the blare of music in my ear or the smell of fancy food.
It is these pubs that need defending. These pubs that cannot be treated as one amorphous lump with the others.
These pubs are special and deserve not only our support but, perhaps as importantly, our respect.
