History of Bars in London

Pubs and bars in London date as far back as the Roman times. The Romans sold food, ale and wine in places called Tabernae.

After the departure of the Romans, ale houses sprang up all over the country. Ale is a potent brew of malted barley, similar to beer but without the hops. With increasing industrial pollution in England, water no longer was safe to drink, so ale became the drink of necessity.

When the Romans left, pubs appeared all over the country.  Due to the massive amount of pollution water was often not safe to drink, so ale was drunk out of neccessity not just socially.

Monks ran Inns, which catered for tired travellers.  In the Elizebethan era tavers were the norm and only sold wine.

One of Londons oldest Inns is The George Inn on Borough High Street, SE1 near London Bridge.

While there is still many historic places to drink, there is a whole host of modern bars in London that are well worth a look for a fantastic night out.
