English pubs continue to decline

Once a staple of social life, the great British pub continues to decline in many areas making way for coffee shops.

However, new figures show the pub remains the most popular leisure venue in the UK.

Local Data Company figures, examined by the BBC, show that between 2011-16, the number of town centre bars, pubs and night clubs fell by about 2,000.

But cafes, fast food outlets and restaurants have gone up by 6,000 across England, Scotland and Wales.

However, there are still fewer coffee shops than pubs in our town centres.
