we have lost a pub in our village, another one about 3 miles away has shut.
The locals are not using them like their grandparents did,
then again the village pub was only a sideline in those days.
the landlord had other irons in the fire.
there was always some thing going on, darts ,dominoes and barbilliards.
most village pubs to-day are licenced restaurants.

Some actually drive themselves out business. Country pubs that still say "no walkers, cyclists, horse riders, bikers, anglers, people with an "e" in their name etc etc now tend to have a short shelf life! There is one famous case of a remote village pub which acquired its own forum because of the attitude of its previous hosts. Wanted to become a country retreat and so made locals and walkers unwelcome. Went belly-up and now, under a new owner who welcomes everyone and is thriving.
