the worthless word for the day is: gastropub
[<gastro- in gastronomic, etc. + pub] Brit.
a public house which specializes in serving
high-quality food (as opposed to pub-grub)
"Will stale pork pies and reheated bangers ever
be axed from pub menus? The rise of the
gastro-pub suggests that, one day, they might."
- Evening Standard 9 Apr. 1996
"Gastropubs usually have an atmosphere which is
relaxed and a focus on offering a particular cuisine
prepared as well as it is in the best restaurants."
