The pub is the fruit of British culture and history. Surprisingly, it's not known what it's like.
The abbreviation of pub appeared in literature in 1865, but around the 13 century, there were many "in" which was the predecessor of pub along the road. There were an astonishing number of travelers in those days, but the conditions for traveling were not in place and they had to struggle to travel along undeveloped roads. Carriages were impassable, and it was only a matter of tying up the horses. In the deeper woods along the way, thieves and robbers lurked, and travelers were always in danger of being assaulted.
