The Pub, short for Public House, has been a long tradition as a meeting place for locals or regulars. Originally based on the Roman Taverna, it is a relative of the taproom, bar room, and alehouse. It is foremost a place of drinking ale, beer, and spirits. Eventually many began serving small plates of food to sustain its guests while on long drinking binges. Many changed their decor, drink offerings, and food to attract a more varied clientele. There also began in the United Kingdom and Ireland, a tradition of niche pubs including some linked with local breweries and other with lodgings.
