I went before they all closed and the lockdown, it was like 2 or 3 weeks ago. I didnt feel sad or anything, if anything I preferd it than going with my mate or anyone. I went on my phone and everything. Its just someone laughed at college and callled me sad so I got angry but wont get into that on here.

I go on my tod every week, I prefer it. I get left alone or if I do bump into people (almost always do), I can either be there on my own terms or just **** off. Much better.

Absolutely not, you can go on your own or with other people. If you go on your own you might even meet other new people. Sometimes we all need a bit of our own time

It seems a bit academic at present. I have gone to the pub to watch football on occasions by myself.

Nothing wrong with going to a pub on your own, sometimes it's nice to have a bit of peace and quiet, away from people you know and love.

Nah, you're fine.
I've been by myself a few times, made a few friends there too.

Going by yourself is fine tbh as it going with others
If anything when the pubs reopen and you go by yourself and want to talk with people there, I'm sure anyone willing to have a conversation twill be fine with you talking to them, especially after the lockdown they might want to talk to other people outside of their house for once

You can get beaten up there and no one can stand up for you. I've never been to a pub. Not sad but painful.

Why do you care what people think?
Everyone on this thread is saying it's fine but say everyone was instead saying it's sad would you then decide to never go to the pub alone again because of what people think?

The reality of the situation is there will be people who see nothing wrong with it and there will be some people who find it weird/sad.

Me personally I find nothing wrong with it and I have done it myself many times.
I just dont like people thinking negatively about me

Right now I’d give anything for things to be back to normal and happy to go to the pub whether it’s alone or with a hundred people!

Nah just depends. I might just want a quiet meal/spend a lunch hour ect, I might be confident of bumping into folk/Groups I know. I might just have a bit of time to kill and want a nice drink to watch the world go by, 8am was a good time, as the world going by all look really bummed out

You need to choose your pubs carefully. Many are not dangerous. Never seen a fight in a pub in 38 years.

Nothing wrong with heading to it for a cheeky drink or whatnot, i've found it can be quite a good place to sit and do some work/read on my own.
With that being said i'd probably draw the line at going their to get ******ed on my own, bit old man/alcoholic.

Dunno, if you went to a pub once, then again 38 years later, it's plausible you might not see a fight :P

Although I must admit, despite being a Glasgow drinker I've seen fewer and few as time goes on, at most ill be alerted to a vague scuffle 'What happened?" "Someone got chucked out" "oh"

Well, I say "never". The ladies' darts team get a bit restless, sometimes.
