Although one of the descriptions that an estate agent will use when describing a property is close to the amenities. The big 4 Ps that are used to describe the amenities that make a village sustainable are Primary School, Parish Church, Post Office and Pub.
Once any go, then the community is dieing. The pub is a major amenity, that is why communities will club together to operate and keep the pub open.
So it may be a business, but it is also one of the prime amenities.
