Pub Life

“So, how long have you been in business?”

“Oh, from about 1312.”
When you say your local pub has history, I guess this is what you mean. 710 years of being in business (I’m assuming there’s new management, but it’s just a guess). The Tales this place could tell, oh boy… It goes to show that human nature has changed little. Sailors and merchants still like to go out and get a pint. People like to get together and talk, and eat in a crowd, and drink with buddies. Not much of a drinker myself, I do enjoy a Sunday lunch as much as the next guy. Here’s to supporting small local success – and keeping it going.

Peter van der Walt is a fiction author, although you may find some non-fiction and the odd essay out there. Fans can find his newsletter, posts, updates and developments at Currently, he is hard at work on his next story. When not writing, he has far too many interests to reasonably keep up with. He lives with his partner in Devon, England.
