This is us

Weʼre Met down the Pub. Eight students, from all over the world, studying in London.

We all love stories. Theyʼre what we tell each other when we get together, in cafés, after lectures, and of course at pubs.

Most of us are new to the UK, so the whole British culture of going down the pub, and the ways itʼs different from going to a bar, is pretty new to us.

Telling each other these stories on a Monday morning of the colourful characters who weʼd ended up talking to for half the night over the weekend, we realised weʼd hit on something we needed to share.

So our site was born.

Here we want to share the stories that weʼve found at the pub. Eccentric characters, pint-holding philosophers, rakes, saints, and raconteurs.

You can read our stories in minutes, but we hope theyʼll stay with you all day.

Who’s the most interesting person you’ve met down down the pub?
