“I love the variety of pubs. The fact there’s a pub for a quiet afternoon pint, and another pub for a Friday night out; a pub where you can play pool, or listen to music; a pub you’ve never been in before which you promise yourself you’ll have to go back to; a pub to hide from the world, or to sit in and watch it go by.”
