|Hammersmith, the Thames still with pubs on the Towpath|
At school it was fairly standard in 5th and 6th years to occasionally visit the pub at lunchtimes, and when we moved to Wethersfield I had a good friend with parents who ran 'The Dog' pub in the village.
For me my golden pub years were at university in Cardiff and in my early twenties in London, beer was around 25p a pint when I was 18 and three or four pints was a regular number of Beers.

Why is it that I'm musing on the Pub? Well oddly I had a pint (or two) in an area that still glories in an ale past, with it's William Morris connection the towpath Hammersmith retains something of the tradition of public house culture.
We started off at The Blue anchor and ended at The Old Ship which reminded me strongly of a pub in Cyncoed, Cardiff (where we'd often have a Cornish pasty too) called The Discovery (it's still there), it felt very 1970's and it's odd too that my friend still works at Discovery (TV channels).
