Depends on what sort of licenced premises they were. If they were just boozers, then no - being a lady of a certain age I never frequent such establishments.

However, if they do nice food and cup of coffee as well as booze - then yes I would miss them.

Most of the good ones have gone now anyway. Its just a matter of time until the rest go, so sad. Its a sad indictment on our society. Kids have no-where to go or be taken by the older generation to "learn" how to drink, they just go out and get bombed on their own, No society of working class production workers going for a pint after work because there's no manufacturing industry anymore. Pubs are so dear because the breweries sold them off to maximise profit like with everything else in this world, banks included, the working man gets screwed over for a profit. Sad rant over!

I would, I don't go to them all the time, but nearly every time there is a special occasion I usually end up in a Pub at some point of the night, if not all of it.

I don't think pubs will ever completely go, but the only ones left standing will be the family ones that serve food such as brewsters/harvester/wethers etc.

I don't go in pubs very often but it would be very sad if they all closed. They serve a very important social function and are a wonderfully unique British institution. We're lucky on the Wirral and Liverpool that we still have some fantastic pubs.

Yes pubs are great places to go with your friends and have a good atmosphere around you. And to have s good perve when the opposite sex is dressed up to the 9's

Tend to invite friends around now, or go to their homes for food and drinkies. Much cheaper.
