One of the things I'll miss most about England is the pub. These pubs are a gathering place, to meet friends and chat and have a good beer and good cheer. They differ from our bars, but it's hard to describe why. They are such a part of the culture here, some have been around for 500 years. Families are always seen in them. They are just casual and inviting. Last night we visited two of our favorites, both on the river, but miles apart.
This is one of our local pubs, the Granta, probably the one we've visited the most.
