Bah. The way pubs get treated in this country is a crime against humanity.
Fucking greedy breweries, soulless developers, idiots who'd rather drink pissy lager out of a plastic cup while some clueless cunt 'drops tunes' so loud you can't hear yourself think, or pay ten quid for a poncey burger in a wanky bar with less personality than a Starbucks, than actually go to a real *pub*...
*grumble grumble grumble*
