    5. An actual trolley as a seat, along with the classic tiny kids' chairs, old beer crates, and former pub tables.

    Before you ask, this isn't a thrift store sale: This is the actual seating of an actual outdoor restaurant.

    6. Church pews.

    In case you need Jesus while you're drowning your sorrows in £6 craft ale.

    7. Old gym equipment.

    They also have an old pommel horse as the bar seating. It's a bit like being in a fancy PE lesson.

    8. This actual hell.

    I still don't really know how this would work.

    9. Old barber chairs.

    10. Chairs and tables at completely the wrong height.

    All very well until you've had a couple of beers.

    13. Old theatre seats.

    These are nice for sitting extremely close together in a straight line with your buddies on a night out.

    14. In the bathroom, old-fashioned taps that look like they belong in a science lab.
