Most of our dining tables seat 8, and we also have two 4-tops. At our cooked meals, where the cooks set the tables with napkins, flatware and glasses (all this in the Before Times, of course, and hopefully in the Times To Come, even though I'm using the present tense), the long tables do not get pushed together. Eight people feels like a good number for one table when there are 30-50 diners. We got the two 4-tops at some folks' request, but they are usually the last to be used. It feels a bit antisocial to sit at an empty 4-top when you're looking for a spot. Occasionally 3 or 4 people who are working on a project will take a 4-top so they can discuss it over the meal, or kids will sit together at a 4-top, but more often they are avoided. I guess it's good to have two of them but we certainly do not need more small tables. However, at our weekly potluck dinners which are more lightly attended, and at our winter Saturday breakfasts, if there are around 10 people present, often one long table is pushed to the end of another to seat up to 14 -- one person always does this if he's there, otherwise it might or might not be done. I always pulled them apart at the end since they would probably not be used that way at the next meal and I thought it made our Great Room look messy.
