Cheaper to buy from supermarket and drink in house.  

Thats just one of several reason's tho BB. Pub's in largely muslim populated area's, Have no customer base since the whites have moved on. Hearing the younger people at work daily, All talking about getting on their PS, to play fifa online. Years ago the talk would be of, what pub were meeting and at what time.There was some kind of entertainment every night, at one pub or another nearby. This young generation, dont socialise, Other than facebook, and twitter. The beer tax, That was introduced by the last fecking government, was a killer for pubs.Smoking ban, is another thing. Breweries charging ridiculous rents, making it hard for landlord's to earn any kind of decent living.

Yet Wetherspoons goes from strength to strength. They doing something right.

Yeah it's not the government at all,  it's sky and the ever changing social response to drinking.  More people prefer to drink at home.  I know I do,  more people drink at home before they go out.  That didn't used to be the case.  I used to go out at 7pm,  if I go out now it's more like 9pm. People have less disposable cash too.  All these add up. 

There are too many pubs also especially on Portsmouth and Plymouth.

I dont agree with the bit about disposable cash. I dont understand, prefering to drink at home either, Surely being out, in a good sociable environment,With people close to you,Is better than being at home.

I do enjoy drinking in pubs but I also enjoy drinking at home watching TV with missus and its cheaper!

sa generally has a few beers in the house every night, Tho that's after i been pub on way home from work. I'm quite lucky where i live in terms of pubs, In my area a few new pubs have opened in the last few years,None have closed, and they are all reasonably lively. Restaurants galore, loads of new ones.

Pubs here are empty during the week in fact some are even closing Monday through till Thursday and then they reopen for the Thursday and weekend

Fatpipe, how you doing. Being oldschool, sa knew he could rely on a response to this from you. Hope your ok and feeling better.A lot of pube close early in the week in Birmingham, makes sense if the profit's dont cover the overheads. sa also think's d&a testing in the workplace may have an effect.
