Rhys Ifans on the pub

The pub is the internet. It’s where information is gathered, collated and addressed. People are looser in a pub and everyone’s got a story. Even as a kid I used to stand under the extractor vent in the winter outside the pub and feel the warm air, smell the beer, smell the Woodbines and hear the voices laughing and telling stories.A pub can be a magical place. It’s socially crucial to the whole of Britain. In fact, the pub is like a watering hole. You’ll see all the animals standing around a lake and getting on because they want a drink; you take them away from the lake and they fall out with each other or worse. Every species has its pub. - Rhys Ifans
