Select the right furniture. Choose something traditionally English to furnish your pub-style space. First made in the 1700s, Windsor chairs have a distinctive saddle shape, a wooden seat and a hooped back, and can make a pub feel more refined. Vintage wooden stools and wooden tables have more of an authentic feel. The more wobbly (technical term) the stool and the more beer coasters you need to shove under the offending leg, the more genuine it'll look.
