Pubs, or public houses, are establishments licensed to sell alcoholic drinks, which traditionally include beer and cider. They are relaxed, social drinking establishment and a prominent part of British culture, amongst others.
Pubs in Britain the 1970s only sold alcohol and snacks (such as peanuts, crisps and pork scratchings), and had restricted opening and closing times, and allowed indoor smoking. Nowadays, the majority of pubs sell meals (aka "pub grub"), and have more relaxed licensing laws and opening and closing times.
