Cities of London and Westminster MP, Mark Field, was one of a number of MPs who visited their local pub today to celebrate and support Britain’s first Proud of Pubs Week.
The Proud of Pubs campaign aims to showcase the fantastic things pubs, licensees and their staff do in their communities, and Mark visited Fleet Street’s Punch Tavern where he was treated to a hearty lunch with his pint.
The Punch Tavern is just one of the large number of well-loved historic pubs which serve the capital and add to its spirit and colour. Speaking to licensee, John Taylor, and chef, Robbie Gallimore, Mark said, ‘British pubs have adapted amazingly well over the last twenty years, and now they are having to adapt again to the smoking ban. We should all celebrate and support them!’.
