Public Houses (commonly just called pubs) are an integral part of British culture. Their origin was back in Roman times when Taverns catered for large numbers of off-duty Roman soldiers or for travelers on the roads. At that time they mostly sold wine as well as food to be consumed on the premises. The Anglo-Saxons were mostly beer drinkers, however, and so the establishments became known as Alehouses.

 

A traveler in the early Middle Ages could obtain overnight accommodation in monasteries but soon the demand grew with the popularity of pilgrimages and travel. As a result, many public houses began to offer accommodation overnight in addition to their normal services. These new establishments were known as Inns. In later years some Inns became regular stops on the routes of stagecoaches, where the horses could be changed and the passengers could either rest for a while or even stay overnight. These establishments became known as Coaching Inns.

 

 

During the 18th Century, the availability of cheap gin in Gin Shops led to drunkenness and lawlessness, said to lead to the ruination and degradation of the working classes. As a result, the Government brought in the Gin Act of 1736 that imposed high taxes on retailers. This led to riots in the streets and the duty was gradually reduced and then abolished in 1742. The Gin Act of 1751 forced distillers to sell only to licensed retailers and brought gin shops under the jurisdiction of local magistrates.

 

 

The Beer Act of 1830 introduced premises called Beer Houses that were permitted to sell beer. At the time, beer was frequently drunk by all of the family instead of water, which was often polluted. The Government’s plan was that the availability of cheap beer would stop people from drinking gin. Under the Act, any ratepayer could make a payment of two guineas for a license to sell beer or cider in his home and to brew his own beer. Beer houses were not allowed to open on Sundays and the beer was usually served in jugs or dispensed from wooden barrels on a table in the corner of the room. Profits were often so high that the owners were able to buy the house next door to live in, turning every room in their former home into bars and lounges for customers.

 

There was a huge increase in the number of Beer Houses so in 1869 new licensing laws were introduced to make it harder to get a license. The new licensed premises were now known as Public Houses. From the mid-19th Century, opening hours of licensed premises in the UK were restricted. The restrictions were tightened even more by the Defence of the Realm Act of 1914, which restricted pubs' opening hours to 12 noon – 2.30pm and 6.30pm – 9.30pm. The reason for this was that output from munition workers was being affected by the effect of alcohol consumed.

 

During the 20th Century, licensing laws were progressively relaxed and this led to disparity in different counties. It was not unknown for drinkers to rush from one pub over the county boundary to another where closing time was later. Some Scottish and Welsh counties remained officially "dry" on Sundays. From the 1960s onwards, licensing laws became even more relaxed and the Licensing Act of 2003 consolidated the many laws into a single Act. This allowed pubs in England and Wales to apply to the local council for the opening hours of their choice.

 

Most pubs offer a range of beers, wines, spirits, soft drinks and snacks. In recent years they have also begun to offer cooked meals. Many pubs are owned by breweries and the landlord either leases the premises from them as a Tenant or is directly employed as a Manager. These are known as Tied Houses and the landlord is required to buy at least some of its beer from that brewery. Other pubs where the landlord owns the premises are known as Free Houses and they are able to freely choose the beers they sell.

 

 

The arrangement of Tied Houses used to lead to the situation where a brewery tied nearly every pub in an area so that it became very hard to drink anything but its beer. The breweries also phased out cask beer in favour of keg beer which was easier to maintain. This led a number of keen beer drinkers to set up an organisation called Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA). Pressure from CAMRA and other drinkers led to the breweries backtracking and allowing “real ale” to be served in their pubs. It also encouraged a lot of micro-breweries to be set up to produce real ale.

 

Until the 1970s, most pubs had an attached shop called an off-license for the sales of alcoholic drink for home consumption. However, new supermarkets and high street stores began to undercut the off-license prices so much that most pubs quickly closed their off-license counters.

 

Hotels offer similar services to Inns but tend to concentrate on the accommodation side more and only offer a single room as a bar.

 

Bars tend to cater for a younger clientele with specialist drinks like cocktails and entertainment. Many bars have a happy hour to encourage off-peak patronage by offering drinks at cheaper prices.
