London, Jul 3 (ANI): A pub that regulars call "Cheers" has topped the list of pubs in Britain.

Wych Elm regular Jay Faulkner said that it was just like the pub in hit US sitcom
"You know everyone - it's got a brilliant atmosphere," the Sun quoted 28-year-old Faulkner as saying.
"The carvery is really great, the beer is good too - you can't go wrong," he said.

Tim Ogle of Retail Eyes, which carried out the survey, added: "In the Midlands, staff seem to know their customers much more."
