Mintel said that over six in ten adults over the age of 18 visit a pub regularly to drink. This is down from seven in ten people in 2007. The group found that more people visit pubs to eat than to drink. Three in ten people think it has been much more pleasant going to pubs since the smoking ban.
If it is really more pleasant to go to a pub since the smoking ban then more people would be doing this more pleasant thing, no?
