Local pubs open on Christmas Day?

Postby still_ill » Tue Dec 16, 2014 7:13 pm

Obviously might not be a need of lots of people, but we've always popped out for two or three drinks in between presents and dinner, so wondered if anybody knew of anywhere definitely opening? Preferably somewhere which sells a decent(ish) pint of ale.

In years gone by it was never a problem, plenty of local social clubs etc would open, say, 1pm-3pm, but not many around nowadays. De Nada have opened the last couple of years for passing lunchtime trade, but apparently aren't this year.

The Horse & Jockey open, don't they? Is that generally or just for people booked in for food?

Thanks in advance.

The reason my dad used to go out a reasonable human being at 12 and come back a drunken b*stard at 3 was due to pubs being open on Xmas day afternoon. If they're stopping doing that now, then hopefully there's less families having to deal with what I had to deal with for 15 years.

Surely people can do without a pub for one fooking day.

The Horse and Jockey is open Christmas Day, as is Wetherspoons, the Beagle is not.

My apologies that your dad liked to get drunk, but your post is (as usual) ignorant for several reasons, none of which i can be arsed wasting the time to explain.
