Pubs have been going through a huge change over the past few years. While many have closed down due to more and more people choosing to drink at home, the ones that have stayed open – and thrived – have done so because they have something more to offer. It could be a Michelin-starred chef in the kitchen or a wide selection of well-kept local ales. It could be a buzzing atmosphere that’s perfect for relaxing in the evening. It could even be something as simple as a few comfy armchairs next to a roaring open fire. But one thing’s for certain; this British institution will be around for a very, very long time.
