My attitude to pubs has changed since the lockdown/s began. I can drink 4 pint-cans of lager from the Co-Op at home for 5.15 twenty second's walk away instead of paying 2.80 a pint at my ex-local. I can choose my own entertainment instead of both bars having Sky Sports blaring on giant screens showing the same game or race and there was even a temporary TV on the patio so that the smokers wouldn't miss anything. Even the usual crowd I hung around with weren't interested in normal conversation whenever a match was on and trying to get served through the noisy crowd standing at the bar was scraping more icing off the cake. I guess I'm showing my age here.
I much prefer the relaxed Continental pavement bar systems but unfortunately they don't mix with British weather.
