When is All Bar One not a pub? There seems to be a quiet acceptance from some of the punters round here that All Bar One is in some ways a pub. Whereas I will happily set it outside the realm of being a pub by its own very attemps not to be a pub. There are pubs of course which have the word “bar” in their name, but if ABO wants to be a bar then I say let them have it. There appears to be a tacit suggestion in Tom’s post below that a shit bar could de facto be designated as a pub – thus lifting bars higher than pubs on some sort if arbitary pecking order. I disagree.

I must admit, his description of the Brickworks isn’t much more alluring. Budweiser on draft!!!! Stop this madness now.Pubs aren’t about winning modesty, they are about boozing.
