Do the pubs built in the last 20 years or so have cellars or a back room for storing ale and the pumps?.
Never seem to see any deliveries of ale made nowadays
(except by the odd white van?)

I'm currently working in a Pub in Wavertree, which was a shop conversion 2 years ago. It was formally a butchers shop with a basement. The ground floor has the main bar and toilets, and the basement has another bar and barrel room. No hatch to drop barrels, must be walked through via the ground floor back door. They also use a white van man, much cheaper than what the rip off breweries charge!

The Perch Rock in New Brighton was one of the few older pubs that has a ground level 'cellar'. It was heavily refridgerated due to the constant hot temperatures in New Brighton and the Guinness was ice -cold decades before Guinness brought in Extra Cold Guinness.

Why not grin - next to the bookies the breweries are the worst robbers in the world - they'd rather close a Pub making profit (but not enough profit) than invest and get the required profit....

Probably longer ago than that - the Thingwall Club in Sparks Lane - opened in 1981 with a 'state of the art' purpose-built modern cellar - ground floor. We have a proper delivery from an excellent smaller brewer (Sam Smiths) - in large, barrels direct into the cellar....
