  • I happened across this quote from comedian Frankie Boyle, which neatly sums up the difference between a pub and a bar: “One of the few decent politicians remaining in the Labour party, [Jeremy Corbyn] reminds me of those old drinkers you see haunting a new bar because they used to go to the pub that was there before.” Boyle is referring to the idea of the pub as a cosy home from home, whereas the ‘new bar’ feels unfamiliar, even alien.
