So, when will the pubs re-open?

What's your best guess?

Never in some cases, I guess. Perhaps the 'hole in the wall' will make a comeback.

End of June ?

Jacob_Richter - 01 Apr 2020 22:19:21 (#3 of 274)

That's optimistic.

End of 2021

Some patriotic day, Boris would like, I guess.

October, possibly late September.

NOT A MINUTE TOO SOON.

Perhaps the 'hole in the wall' will make a comeback.

That's on High Petergate in York, just inside Bootham Bar. It used to be called the Board Inn.

Some enterprising souls are probably already opening speaksneezies.

When were pubs last closed? I'm thinking never since they were invented.

When were pubs invented?

mentranilvavin - 01 Apr 2020 22:44:55 (#12 of 274)

A world without pubs, bars, restaurants... All across Europe. Everything is closed.

One could easily become gloomy.

Just after Adam fermented the Apple and made Scrumpy....

tasselhoff - 01 Apr 2020 22:47:01 (#14 of 274)

It's why God had to invent Eve, boss.

Antimatter - 01 Apr 2020 22:47:19 (#15 of 274)

It used to be the case that in the UK, pubs HAD to open every day with the exception of Christmas. I don't know if this is still the case.

mentranilvavin - 01 Apr 2020 22:47:45 (#16 of 274)

It evidently is not.

JohnIlly - 01 Apr 2020 22:52:22 (#17 of 274)

The obligation to open at set hours lapsed when when the longer hours were introduced.

It's why God had to invent Eve, boss.



Before he invented Eve he created the Milky Way according to the ancient Greeks.

When was this in force? There are quite a few pubs in the City, for instance, that are closed on Sunday and often on Saturday. I can't remember how far this goes back, though.

Also, weren't pubs in Scotland closed on Sundays, and in some parts of Wales? Anthony Burgess says of the area of Wales his wife came from that they were, although in practice this meant that they had longer hours than normal, but you had to use a hidden entrance.

In Ledsham, the lady of the manor decreed that the pub should not open on Sunday, and it didn't till v recently.
