What is a Gastropub? According to Wikipedia: The term gastropub, a portmanteau of gastronomy and pub, originated in the United Kingdom in the late 20th century. British pubs were drinking establishments and little emphasis was placed on the serving of food. If pubs served meals they were usually basic cold dishes such as a ploughman's lunch. In South East England (especially London) it was common until recent times for vendors selling cockles, whelks and mussels and other shellfish, to sell to customers during the evening and at closing time. Many mobile shellfish stalls would set up near pubs, a practice that continues in London's East End.
