- Pubs, anyone still go to one to drink alcohol
Blimey! You sound like a right laugh, some of you lot! Some right little rays of sunshine 😀
Isn’t it the law that all rides, particularly night rides, end at the pub for a couple of scoops? Especially this time of year while you warm up? It certainly is as far as we’re concerned. ThankfullyPosted 5 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
I am not interested to go to the PUB. I don’t like drinking.
1) You can’t not like drinking, you need to drink water to live. and there must be somethign you like drinking, milk, orange juice, beer?
2) If you dont like the taste of Beer, then you’re unlucky
3) You meant ‘getting drunk’ not ‘drinking’
I like the taste of beer. Getting midly inebriated with on a sunny summer afternoon or a cold winter’s day infront of a fire after a ride is a plesent side effect.Posted 5 years agociderinsportMember
I go every Thursday mid ride.
As a group we support pubs that are good for us.
Last night we had two huge platters of sausage, chips and bread and butter.
We stayed 2 hours and spent £130 😳
Another pub we frequent gave us a loyalty card giving 10% back. This Christmas we will have £200 to spend! They also give us cheesy chips!
Its nice to be popular!Posted 5 years agospacemonkeyMember
Not as much as in my 20s when I was part of the furniture five evenings M-F and then most of the weekend.
Only have the occasional social pint now but do go pretty often as a family thing. We have some nice country pubs down this way so good food and drink is often sought. Can just about put up with the price of a pint but the cost of wine pi55es me right off.Posted 5 years agoBigButSlimmerBlokeMember

Only if you could teach that lewis hamilton a thing or two about driving, show that alex ferguson how to manage a football team and are a better rider than that lance armstrong and you don’t take drugs.Posted 5 years ago
Sitting in a pub not talking crap should illegal.
And talking work punishable by death.derek_starshipMember
I go to the pub after our weekly night ride. Which, this week, happens to be tonight. I have one pint and ride home. My mate does the same. We both have a pint of Peroni and the round costs £8.20. And this is in a non-glitzy, small town pub. I couldn’t afford to go to the pub for a proper piss up!Posted 5 years agobikebouyMember

I’m happy that a resurgence of Micro Brewers has made it’s way back into the Eng-er-land’shires. About time that happened what with all that garbidge coming out of Burton – on – Trent..
Actively seek them out we do whether walking or riding.
Though have to say, in That London even though there are a few Micro’s we go to, in the main it’s the chain pubs that seem to be full.. Must be something to do with Genes you are born with.Posted 5 years agorogermooreMember
Been there! Ace beer, friendly staff and food was good too. Would recommend to anyone happening to be in Newcastle and thirsty.
I’m lucky to have 6 good real-ale type pubs within walking distance from home, so normally get out at least once a week. Added bonus at this time of year is that most of them have real fires!

One of the few decent things about living in derby is that we are blessed with many local micro brewers knocking out great beer, and there are some good pubs to drink them at. I love a proper booze, decent beer and i love being ‘in beer’. I tend to get out for a decent session about once a fortnight, and usually once a month will pop to my mates in London where we will spend a day ambling around a fine selection of boozer.Posted 5 years ago
Oh dear God, NO! Spare us from amateur Christmas drinkers. You can usually spot them, to avoid, by the dead giveaway sign – the bottle of Budweiser in hand
Avoid pubs that sell that pish. Simples! 🙂

Genes you are born with.the part of town you’re in.
Both of my locals are nicely full and sell proper beer. Neither is a chain pub (Unless you count them owning two or three pubs each, all with the same ethos. Both pubs have expanded over the last couple of years, as a direct result of being GOOD pubs!)Posted 5 years agobuzz-lightyearMember
Unless something intervenes, with my best friends every Friday between 7:30-10pm in The Hunter’s Lodge in Priddy, for a couple of pints of local beer or cider, a faggot or some chilli, to blow off steam, and to half-heartedly play a couple of board games. I hate missing it!Posted 5 years agocameroneSubscriber
I tend to go to my local constitutional club where there is a vast array of beers, and a pint of Pardoes Bumblehole will set me back £2.02.Posted 5 years ago
had six after a soaking wet morning ride a while back and fell down the stairs in the garden with my wife and kids looking bemused at the window…..emszMember
My local,at the end of the road, is a shit hole tbh, but I still go there most weekends, mostly because Keith ( owner ) let’s me run a tab LOL. Dread to think what I’ve spent in there, but it’s pretty much always a riot. Took the girl I’m seeing there the other night, you should have seen the look on her face!! Might have to find somewhere else to go. But I’d miss Evie the mad cat lady, Shaun the taxi cab driver who’s only got one eye, and mike who actually lives there as far as I can tell!!Posted 5 years agoandyrmMember
My local is a gem of a place (The Star & Dove in Bristol, the owners have just taken a second place on too) – it’s about more than the drinking, it’s a social thing too. Seeing people, chatting to strangers, banter/abuse with the landlord, that whole interacting thing that seems to have been lost since the internet became such a big thing.
Back in the day when men were men, we’d go to the pub with our mates, bang the world to rights etc. Now it’s just attention seeking Vaguebooking instead with those terrible posts like “Don’t know why I bother”, blatantly posted in the hope of 600 replies like “oh no babes, hope you are ok” etc like some teenage girls.
A good pub is so much more than just a place to drink.Posted 5 years agoDickyboyMember
Fri – 4 pints at an end of Summer beer festival in town
Mon – 2 pints of Rebellion Smuggler with Mark Beaumont in my local 8)
Tues – hashing night so 1 pint of John Smiths at some pub near Slough

Fairly average week apart from the company on Monday 🙂 mind you I did baulk at one round of two pints & two packets of crisps coming to £9 😯Posted 5 years agocrazantMember
Went to Coniston in the camper van a fortnight ago and went into town for a few…
Pint of Lager and a 125ml glass of Rose…£7.05
2nd round Same but 175ml Glass of Rose £8.05
Pint of some German lager and a 175ml glass of Rose and a small pack of Kp Nuts ….£9.85 !!!!
So 25 quid for 3 drinks each…to much I say…..
Bottle of Rose and 3 bottles of Peroni from the Coop £11 quid…..should have stayed in…..Posted 5 years agospawnofyorkshireSubscriber
i was in my favourite pub the grove last night, today is not going very well as a consequence.
Asking Brian to recommend us good bottle conditioned beers was an awesome idea, but £10 for a 750ml bottle of Marble Earl Grey IPA nearly caused this tightfisted yorkshireman a heart attack
btw the beer was amazing and worth the tenner, i’d highly recommend itPosted 5 years agobreatheeasyMember
Some company bought our local pub with plans to turn it into a residential home instead. There was outrage at how someone could do this.
Until somepone pointed out actually nobody bothered their fat lazy asses to walk the 20 feet to it and actually drink in it, so it was actually financially unviable.
So its now a residential home…Posted 5 years agoyunkiMember
good god I loved my local pub with all of my heart.. It was the centre of my universe for many years before mrs yunki and the kids came along..
we’ve moved away now though, and the kids haven’t really given me ample opportunity to sample the village inn yet
The old local was thriving last time I visitedPosted 5 years ago
