Sums up my feelings about the pub scene these days as well. Been many years since I enjoyed it. If I were to hit a pub these days it would be a quiet out of town pub, with 3 mates, spending the night playing euchre.
Ooh. L' Euchre how the other half live in thier covid free societies being all la di da while us rejects suffer in tier 2. God knows how the tier 3 scum are coping?
Do tier 3 types even have pubs? I thought they just passed round cans of special brew around a burning oil drum on wasteland?

I'm exactly the same. If I go out with the missus, we'll get out for lunchtime and head back late afternoon before the crowds. I'm generally pissed by this point and then I get home and think having a bottle of red wine and a few glasses of whisky is a good idea. It never is.

Whenever I've been out with the work lot, everyone seems to want to head to the places that are absolutely rammed. I get that this means the places are probably good and are popular for a reason, but I just want to sit down, have a drink and talk to people. But no, let's go somewhere I end standing at the bar for 20 minutes, have half of my drink knocked out my hands as I try to squeeze through the crowd to find people and then not being able to talk to anyone all night without shouting directly in their face because of the loud, s**** music.

Ha I’m happy drinking at home too for the reasons above <laugh>

If I do go out drinking it tends to be between 12-6 where it’s more chilled before all the tossers come out for their nighttime binge.

I've got one pub where I live and I'll be honest; it's a total shithole. The tables are never cleaned, all the punters are thick as s***, **** assholes who aspire to be z-list celebrities; you have to wade through a lake of piss to go to the toilet and they never clean the pipes so the beer is rancid.

I miss it.

I normally go to my local to meet 1 or 2 mates a couple of times a week. Hate going out into town now, I've got 2 pubs within a 2-3 minute walk of my house. Was quite enjoying pub life pre-lockdown as well, guaranteed a table, get table service and closes at 10 so no danger of it being a late one.

You can have beer in Tier 3 too and you get to drink it in your own house <diva>
I like going out, staying in is boring
Cheap beer
Cheap food
Better surroundings
Comfortable, available seating
Comfortable, available toilets
Choice of TV/music
No d******** (apart from me)
No taxis

I'm happy at home!

Only 2 active cases, life pretty much as normal with no social distancing or mask wearing required ... b****es!

Seriously though, I consider myself really lucky to be living where I am right now. Stay safe guys and hope you still manage to have some sort of Xmas this year.
