A Traditional Quintessentially English Country Town Pub – A Rare Breed

 Traditional Quintessentially English Country Town Pub – A Rare Breed
What’s your idea of an English Pub?
Hops adorning the ceiling?
Rough blackened beams & polished Bed Warming Pans on the Walls?
Stone & Wood floors?
Smoked Blackened Cotswold Stone Walls?
A Fire and Mulled Wine on Cold Days?
Hunting Prints (and naughty pictures too)?
A Characterful Beer from the Cotswolds Oldest Brewery a Couple of Miles away?
(and it’s still powered by an old waterwheel with much original equipment!)
An Old Stone enclosed Courtyard Garden with Potted Willows & Hanging Baskets?
A Toothless barely comprehensible local rolling a cigarette in the corner?
Another (with teeth but maybe not his own) boring the nearest sympathetic ear?
A lot of proud locals happy to expound the joys, history and beauty of our town (and the gossip)?
Somewhere you go to find out who fixes what and where?
The joker at the bar with a fast and stupid quip?
Bar Staff with a ready smile and a wish to help you?
Home made Faggots, Steak & Kidney Puddings, Sea Bass & Salsa Verde (Yes, girly things too)
Fish Finger Butties, Well Filled Sandwiches & Hot Soup at Lunchtimes?
Always a fresh Fish Dish on the Menu for lighter eating
A Good Selection of Carefully Chosen Wines?
Pimms in the Summer?
Dogs under the tables?
A natural inate warmth from the moment you walk in?

What do you think lurks in a Traditional English Pub?
