So, with LN, we get bars. Yay! Drinking! But for some reason, they're all either skyscrapers or holes. wtf? You don't have to be a classless city kid to enjoy a drink!

With my rural simmies crying out for attention, I eventually gave in and created The Queen's Knickers: a little tucked-away pub in the woods, tagged in-game as a Local Watering Hole: in the best English tradition, complete with thatched roof, tudor(ish) construction, dingy toilet, and questionable décor!

The Queen's Knickers provides everything you'd expect from a pub. We have parking for two cars for juice-drinkers - see the stylish rows of rocks in the front which couldn't possibly be hiding anything - and two bike racks. We also have a garden, complete with fenced-off play area including slide, toys, and sandpit, for sunny afternoons:

And a perfect, cosy, and warm interior, for bitter winter nights (lonely, or... otherwise. We don't judge so long as you pay your tab...). Whether you want a table with friends, to sit and chat at the bar, to play a quick game of darts (got to keep the lads occupied while the ladies get on with running the world), or to curl up by the fire - it's all here!

Serving beer, ale, beer, wine, beer and, let's not forget, coiydaaarr, no sim could possibly be miserable within the whitewashed walls of The Queen's Knickers!

Oh god, I didn't even plan that one... I hope the beaver-hats don't catch me...

Technical stuff:
Unfortunately, EA suck. Yes, that's it, that's all you're getting.
Well, ok. When lots are rotated, the terrain paint gets all out of whack. That's why you may sometimes notice a patch of dirt two feet to the left of a tree or a lamppost on an EA lot. The same applies here - so if you rotate the lot, the sandpit may end up being more of a sand-smear. It's easy enough to fix.

Custom Content:
I did try to stay away from the CC, I really did . Sadly, EA don't give us proper stuff, so I have used six items of CC. Five are included in the rar file (thankyou, creators, for your lovely policies!), the sixth is this:
Tavern sign by Syren
Of course, if you really don't want to download it, you needn't - you'll just have to delete whatever random object the sign is replaced by. But, well, what kind of English pub doesn't have a sign?

I also very very strongly recommend that you download this:
Gone with the Window with 18 slots by cmomoney
If you don't, the lamp and the beer glass that are sitting in the window will disappear. You should download it anyway, even if you don't download the blinkin' lot, because it's awesome.

Lot Size: 2x2
Lot Price: §34,080/§14,043

Custom Content Included:
- Glass of Beer by Sandy @ AroundTheSims3
- Vodka Bottle by Sandy @ AroundTheSims3
- Whiskey Bottle #2 by Sandy @ AroundTheSims3
- Cheap Toilet by Lisen801
- Brown Thatched Roof by QBUILDERZ

Additional Credits:
I started this lot so long ago that I don't even remember who helped me... so thankyou to all the #create folks who helped me with this, especially whoever it was who helped me fix the CASting on the stage!

The CC seen on the sims is by, variously, oepu, Anubis360, LadyFrontbum, bunnylita, Lit, and myself.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This is a great little pub, thank you!

I am having troubles with both of your links however. The link to the sign tells me it is not there, and the link to window tells me only MTS staff can access.

Ack! Sorry, I'll fix those! I checked the sign one last night though, and it worked. :/

ETA: Window link is fixed, the sign link already works for me though... Maybe this will work? The sign is in the first thread, October 16th:

Thankyou for the compliments!

This is a very nice Local Watering Hole my small village really need it...

I can report that I have installed this nice little pub in the Sunset Walley and it works very well, always a lot of visitors.

Some years ago my family spent a few weeks on a canal trip in England with a fantastic boat we rented and we found this kind of small pubs here and there.
Really very wonderful.

I am English, so yes, I have. I guess you've never been in a New Forest pub?

This is so cute, and being in the UK myself, it is a very authentic country pub. And I love the name! Nice work.

I absolutely love this thing, and am wondering if I could persuade (beg) you into letting me use it in my new world? (Albeit with a few modifications & credit going to you.)

Just one problem: You didn't put a toilet in the bathroom, so when you place the lot it counts as "Closed" because in order for it to be a level 1 business and open it has to have that toilet.

It's not a big deal, because as soon as you buy it as real estate and click on the thing it tells you to just plop a toilet in there, and there is space for it in the bathroom.

There is a toilet; you will have to install the attached .package files for it to show up, though - or, as you say, place one yourself.

I've never been to England, but I've been an Anglophile all my life. This is exactly what I imagine an English pub would look like. So quaint and cozy. Thank you very much, indeed.

I have lived in England all my life and i can tell you this is the epitome of one type of English Pub. Its perfect and i am sure it could only be build by a fellow Brit or someone whos spent many a happy hour in an English Pub!
love it
