To celebrate Cask Ale Week, which runs until 1 October, the survey also found that it's the most likely place that friends will choose to catch up, over cafés and restaurants.

The average Brit will apparently visit the pub twice a month, and three in 10 revealed that they go to the pub when feeling stressed or annoyed.

One in five people are also on first-name terms with their local pub landlord, whilst four in 10 people will make a special trip to pubs that serve their favourite beer.
