I heard of it in the past, an industry term in the UK.

Wet-led pubs vs food-led pubs.

Staycation in particular, Bertie.

It's not all piss in fairness, some of it is vomit, lots of it is spilt heineken, and a small amount is semen

It just makes me think of some weird bar with sticky, stout-soaked carpets and a bad smell wafting from the jacks.

Awful, awful phrase to use.

DOP’s - drink only pubs.

FAD’s - food and drink pubs,

“Jeeez I’ve got a quare thirst on me horse I’ll be off down the DOP”

“I need to get a feed down the bleedin FAD wha ?”

That's sounds like a horrible local bar you go to. Thankfully I do not go to bars or any wet pubs. I prefer to stay dry myself. We get enough rain in this country without getting wet in a pub too.

Pubs are pubs; places that do food too are inns.
