    What kind of music is the most prefered to listen to?

    What kind of atmosphere do you like?

    If they do, I go to the pub down the road! :tongue:

    I like a pub that sells good beer and good food and has a nice atmosphere. So pretty much the same as I look for in pubs at home really! :rolleyes:

    We think on the same lines;
    we just go for somewhere that sells real ale and a good selection of it as well.
    We went on our holidays last year and went to a pub at Topsham;
    no music,no gambling machines,just sold real ale etc,no pub food ham/cheese cobs available at lunch time only.
    {We went for the evening just over 2 hrs dont really remember coming out:oops: }
    You could sit and talk without having to shout from 1yard away to make yourself heard by the person next to you
    It was a old fashioned pub and a real lovely place to go for Real Ale spoilt for choice a beer drinkers paradise a minimum of 6 beers:clap:

    Our Hotel in Gambia had a bar right in the middle of the pool, it was ace!

    At this point i feel i should that Gambia was obvioulsy a life enhancing experience not just a holiday!

    It was pretty Sureal sitting beside a pool bar in t shirts in December! Not complaining tho, the beer was lush - Julbrew, if anyone see's it in England ever please let me know!

    I think the most important thing has to be a cute (and funny) Bar man to flirt with! Definately makes the whole experience more interesting!

    We had a Guitar one night as well, it seemed like a upper class version of Kareoke! :)

    A warm, open, real fire with a big comfy sofa and a glass of red with a view over rolling hills and maybe a lake too. Although with all of that it might not be classed as a bar?! More like a log cabin :redface:

    If had to choose a bar it would have cool, cool guiness, live Traditional Irish music and a jolly, toe tapping atmosphere. Then I would go back to the log cabin!

    Hint hint for holidays coming up D :biggrin:

    somewhere comfortable where I can relax over a nice cool drink (if somewhere hot) but if somewhere cold (eg England in winter) I agree with flugel_fancy and want somewhere snug and warm with a big fire.

    Good beer, peace and quiet and enough local folk to make friends with. Noisy juke box, sport on a telly, folk singing off key to an instrumental recording, I get all that at home in my local, I go on holiday to get away from it.
