The Pub is a Very British thing.. well it was...
Pubs are closing down at a rate of one every 12 hours, new figures show.
The Campaign for Real Ale say that 378 pubs
shut down permanently between July and December last year in England, Scotland and Wales, representing more than 14 closures a week.

Covid 19 really is the final nail in the coffin.
Most people I have spoken to say they would not be happy to go to the Pub if they open on the 4th July.
It is not going to be the same 'Social' night out we were once used to.
People have got used to Supermarket prices of Beer, Wine and Spirits.
Based on 3 pints per day at £4.40 per pint. after 104 days of lock down I have potentially saved £1372.80
That does not account for the occasional Shot at £4.00 + a time.
I think it is very likely Pub Prices Could rise significantly. Food sales are likely to decline.
Eating out in our favourite local Restaurants will be a Very different experience.
Having to book in advance and not be able to make a snap decision when a few mates happen to fancy a Ruby..
