Britain is a currently divided nation. If only there was something to unite us. There is - beer, the national drink, and the best place to drink it, the pub. In Britain we come together at the pub regardless of our background and status.

My Berlin Kneipe

Most of us have heard about Berlin's legendary nightlife. Walking through this soggy city I feel like its reputation precedes it somewhat, and I wonder if every dour building under the grey and overcast sky might contain some weird and whacky alcohol-fuelled dungeon. I'm sure there are plenty of other bloggers out there who will dive into that scene far more deeply than I have time for.

There are two main stereotypes which adhere to the British persona; the china cup toting tea drinker, and the rowdy lager lout. These are the guises other nationalities would have us take and we've worn them pretty well throughout the decades, but little by little a change has taken place and in recent years an interloper has appeared on the high street...

A tug at my trouser leg brought me back into the room. I looked down to find an eighteen month old offering me a small fistful of peanut butter and, for the first time since I gave up nutty spreads as a five year old, I accepted it.

We've all been in a bar and bemoaned the surrounding tables of people who are more interested in their Facebook feed, than the friend sitting opposite them. Entire dinner times lost scrolling through the internet making you wonder why they bothered even coming out at all?

There are few pleasures as universal as dining out with family and friends. Grabbing a pint in the pub with an old friend or going to dinner with loved ones are some of our favourite ways to spend quality time social time with our nearest and dearest. Far from being merely a place to eat and drink, restaurants, cafes and bars are social spaces - social spaces that across the UK we elect to spend our time, and our money.

Pub Talks: Debating the EU Referendum Over a Pint

The premise was simple: a website that encouraged people to hold their own EU referendum debate at their local pub. I could provide a template for a debate, the campaigns contact details and a list of potential questions - then sit back content in the knowledge that I'd done something.

London has been a great place to drink for many a year. This year, for me, it seemed even better than before. My favourite watering holes continued to please while a handful of bars and pubs new or otherwise previously unknown to me caught my attention with great service, comfy digs and - most importantly - quality quaffs.

Many tourists wrongly assume Dublin is beyond their budget, but I don't agree. I've just returned from a break in the 'fair city', giddy on its atmosphere but not facing the sharp shock of a hefty bill. Here's how I did it.

"Hot Chocolate is 2Pac's dad" was something that a friend told me over a pint when we were teens. As you can imagine it divided the group, some were taken aback by the revelation and others laughed and called bullsh**. I didn't fully believe it at the time but as years went by I realised that part of me never truly disbelieved.

Many pubs are important parts of the communities they serve, and every pub is different. If a pub closes its doors forever then its distinctiveness, atmosphere and character are lost forever. Just because there may be another pub down the road doesn't mean it will be an adequate replacement.
