Missing the hubbub and bonhomie of your favourite boozer? Over on BFI Player you can experience the authentic ambience of drinking dens galore in the Virtual Pub Crawl collection.

From city boozer to country inn, the public house has always been about more than beer and crisps. A place of friendship, festivity and (hopefully occasional) excess, the local pub is at the centre of many communities. Though the smoky fug has lifted in the modern bar, these films show that the qualities of a good night out are timeless.

This collection captures the dizzying diversity of the UK's drinking dens, from Victorian pubs to Motorway pubs, the Crooked House - the Staffordshire pub where the beer bottles roll uphill and the landlord claims, "You come in drunk and go out sober" - or the Haunted Pub.

Along the way you'll meet a colourful cast of characters, from Darrell Jones - the tracksuit clad enthusiast trying to elevate the pub crawl to a competitive sport - to Jim, the pub donkey who gets through five gallons of beer a day!
