Another One Down

Over the weekend I discovered that yet another pub near me has closed (pictured above), and is currently being converted into a house. Nothing special in that given the current climate, but this pub has personal resonance for me not least because it was where my best man took me to have a couple of liquid refreshments before the wedding ceremony itself.

It also means the village in question has now lost its only pub, joining the ever growing list of dry villages.

No flowers.

  1. So sad. Badingham lost a super pub earlier this year, despite enthusiastic landlords and great pub grub.

    Don't know the answer, but the smoking ban seems to have speeded up the end.

  3. Agree the smoking ban did no end of damage to our pubs and is the main cause of closures. Irony is the British pub is seen as a major attraction for foreign tourists. To quote a certain song “you don't know what you've got 'till it's gone “

  5. Perhaps the whole concept of the smoking ban was to reduce the amount of public meeting places and their participants in the first place, if not the intent indeed the result.
