Feb 14, 2013 —  The term watering hole was first used in the 1880s as a synonym for “bar.” Back in the late 19th Century, the distinction between a watering hole and a restaurant was clear; if you needed a shot or a brew after a tough day, you’d stop at a pub. Alternately, if you wanted some grub, you’d have to hit up a separate eatery.

These days in Europe, some of the best places to grab a pint double as excellent bistros, meaning you no longer have to sacrifice food for drink and vice versa.

European gastropubs have you covered whether you want an appetizer with your New Castle or are hungry enough for a delectable entrée that you can follow up with a few more New Castles. And if you want both, at these super bars, it’s often as easy as flipping over a menu to see an overabundance of nourishing options.

Whether you’re sitting at a pub on the Thames in London or a tavern outside the Hotel Berlin, you can pick one of the many tasty, healthy, and hearty plates that make up the contemporary European bar food menu.
