WANTED: Plans/Ideas for an English Pub Bar and Booth

Hello,
I've found a couple of Bar plans on the NYW site and seem a few antiques online. Has anyone built or seen plans for an English Style Pub Bar and accompaning furniture? Are there other plans or sites I could look at to get ideas? I'm looking for simplicity in design and thinking dark wood, maybe pine but not red oak.
Thanks
Tim

Yes - the Wetherspoons catalogue. You can mail-order an entire pub these days, just like the Victorians did corrugated iron chapels for missionaries. Wetherspoons is a pub chain that buys up tired pubs and refits them in an identical style with "traditional" MDF. They have an in-house style guide on how to do it.
If you want a decent looking pub, then go into one you like and take a picture of it. Many English architectural salvage yards will even have some fittings for you, like a couple of beer engines.
Other specialist fittings are harder to find; the beer warmers, the pork scratcher, the thing that adds the wallpaper paste to the vegetarian lasagne.
Don't expect any Englishman to like it though, unless it looks exactly like a pub from within 50 miles of their home town. We'll know.

Thanks Andy,
I wasn't really thinking along that line since I'm in Wash DC, but there are some British and Irish pubs around with some very good woodwork so I'm off on a trip downtown soon with my camera. Thanks also for the Wetherspoons lead.

Ahhhh, pub research in DC a capital (no pun intended) idea. Be sure to call a cab! ;) Check out the four P's on Connecticut Ave by the zoo. It's Irish obviously but they have some nice woodwork. Allen Catonsville, MD
