"Friday evening at the local pub" London Local Custom Tip by Dabs

London Local Customs: 710 reviews and 860 photos

  Friday at the local pub
by Dabs
 
 

Here's something you don't see in the US, folks out on the sidewalk drinking a pint from their local pub. I'm not talking about sidewalks with tables or beer gardens in the back, no this is just people congregated on the sidewalks and sometimes spilling into the streets provided they aren't busy with traffic. On Fridays, especially, it seems that they start hanging around outside the pubs around noon and never go back to work...

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars

    isn't that pub near Leicester Sq. Actually outside the center and all over the country many pubs are closing down and becoming mini markets as people can no longer afford to go to them

      What a shame, London pubs have so much character!
