* The Blue Boar, Woolfont Magna, in the ''Literature/VillageTales'' series ("S. Kellow, Licensee, Sole Prop. :: A Free House :: Real Ales & Ciders"). On any given evening, you may well find the Duke being affable, the Rector walloping all comers at snooker, the District poacher being chucked out, the senior "team curate" Fr. Campion – or the parish organist, his brother, if Fr. Campion is defending his darts title – leading a sing-along at the piano, SupremeChef Teddy Gates escaping his gastropub-hotel for a pie and a pint, and bewildered tourists trying to penetrate the barrier of Mr. Kellow's West Country accent. On ''Quiz Nights,'' always in aid of one or another local cause, you ''will'' find most of the District tackling questions an Oxford Senior Common Room couldn't agree on, with the fortunate among them having signed on to a team captained by the Headmaster of the Free School, the Rector, or the Duke. The warm, friendly Old Bridge, run by Mr. Kellow's cousin Jack Burridge, fulfills a similar function for the Downland parishes, mostly for Meaningfully Taciturn (but warm and friendly) farmers and water bailiffs and so on: river bailiff Fred Beckett, and his dog Toby, are regulars, as is Dr. Molly Hillier the chief environmental officer. As of Literature/"Evensong", Mr. Kellow's son is working on reopening and restoring the old Woolpack – briefly and disastrously bought by "vurriners" from another part of the County and renamed "The Ring of Bells" – down in Woolfont Crucis. The characters spent a good deal of time down the local, really....

* The Plumber's Arms in ''Series/{{Teachers}}'' is the teachers' pub of choice (by informal agreement the students do not go in that pub while the teachers do not go in theirs). They try various other drinking venues, but always default back to the Plumber's, practically every night.

Public houses, or "pubs" are [[BritishPubs a cherished British and Irish institution]], and are rather different from North American bars (or, at least, the TV versions of said bars). They're much better lit, more comfortable, better furnished, and serve "pub grub" as well as the usual mixed drinks and pints of ale. They're open to all ages until a certain hour, and they close much earlier. [[FrothyMugsOfWater You only have to be eighteen to have alcohol]][[note]]Sixteen in the UK if ordered with a meal[[/note]]. Service generally requires going up to the bar to order. The closest American equivalent is the LocalHangout.
