Going to pubs is a very popular leisure-time activity . In a recent survey seven out often adults said they went to pubs, one third of them once a week or more often.

去酒吧是一项非常流行的休闲活动。最近的一项调查显示7/10的成年人表示他们会去酒吧,1/3的人每周去一次或者更多。

Everywhere there are plenty of pubs, in which people play darts, talk and drink, usually while standing up. Every pub has its name, its sign and its "regulars", its customers who turn up night after night. A few old pubs have real character but many are dull and ugly.  It seems that the English think it rather indecent for people to drink alcoholic drinks in any place where they can be seen from outside.  So pubs usually not only have no tables outside, but are so built that it is impossible for people outside to see in,or for those who are inside to see out. There are exceptions to this, but not many.

酒吧在英国随处可见。人们在那里站着玩飞镖、聊天或者喝酒。每个酒店都有自己的名字、自己的招牌和“常客竹(即那些每个晚上都会光顾的客人)。一些老店很有特色,但多数却是既无聊又丑陋。英国人似乎认为,在任何一个从外面看得见的地方喝酒都是件不体面的事。所以,这里的酒吧不仅外面不设桌子,而且它的建筑结构使你既不能从外面看到里面,也不能从里面看到外面。当然,这也有一些例外,但不多。
 

Types of pubs vary  considerably from quiet, rural establishments with traditional games, such as skittles and dominoes, to city pubs where different sorts of entertainment such live music can often  be found. The opening hours of pubs, which were previously strictly controlled, have been relaxed and many pubs now serve food as well as drink.

有些酒吧比较安静,它们座落在乡下,客人在里面可以玩传统的游戏,例如九柱游戏和骨牌。城市的酒吧提供不同的娱乐,通常可以看现场音乐表演。酒吧的营业时间以前是严格控制的,现在则放宽多了’许多酒吧除了提供酒水外还供应食物。

The traditional pub was a place for the men only. But things have changed, and more and more pubs are now places where men and women sit at tables, and they often provide good lunches. Most of them have a public  bar, where drinks are slightly cheaper, and a saloon bar, which middle-class people usually prefer because it is more comfortable and less crowded. Some
 pubs have become more welcoming to families with younger children than in the past, although children under fourteen are still not allowed in the bar.

传统上的酒吧是男人的世界,但今天情况已发生了变化,在越来越多的酒吧里,你可以看见男人和女人同桌共饮,这些酒吧常常能提供很好的午餐。而且,大多数酒吧都设有一个公共酒吧区,那里的酒水相对而言比较便宜,此外,它们还设有一个沙龙酒吧区,那是中产阶级人士常常光顾的地方,那里不仅比较舒服,人也比较少,某些酒吧比过去更受到有小孩的家庭的欢迎,尽管14岁以下的小孩还是不能进酒吧的。

British drinking habits have changed with larger and continental beers now more popular than traditional fonns of British beer. In cities,wine bars have appeared in competition with pubs. Although, in general,people in Britain now drink more than they used to, new typesof drinks such as alcohol-free beer and wine have appeared and there has been a general move to educate people more about the dangers of drinking too much.

英国人的喝酒习惯已经改变了很多,更大瓶的啤酒和大陆式啤酒现在比传统英国啤酒更受欢迎。在城市中,葡萄酒酒吧与酒馆互相竞争。虽然从总体上来说,英国人现在喝酒比以前多,但是已经出现新的没有酒精的酒类,并且人们越来越明白酒精以及酗酒的害处了.
