Every town has at least one and they all share some common architectural features. A two story affair occupying an important corner, or the middle of a block. A second floor veranda with intricate iron rail balusters overhangs the sidewalk in front. Haven't been inside many, but the ones I have are not lacking in character. Like home, we occasionally head out for a refreshment after work. Unlike home, almost all pubs here have a covered courtyard and some family-friendly places. Some even have playgrounds for the kids, and mine, last week, had a small flock of chickens wandering around.
