Britains Best Real Heritage Pubs This definitive listing is the result of 25 years’ research by CAMRA to discover pubs that are either unaltered in 70 years or have features of truly national historic importance. Comprehensively revised from the 2013 edition, the book boasts updated information and over 650 top-quality new photographs. Among the 260 pubs, there are unspoilt country locals, Victorian drinking palaces and mighty roadhouses. The book has features describing how the pub developed, what’s distinctive about pubs in different parts of the country, how people a century ago could expect to be served drinks at their table, and how they used the pub for take-out sales in the pre-supermarket era. There is a bonus listing of 75 pubs that, while not quite meeting CAMRA’s national criteria, will still thrill visitors with their historic ambience. Real Heritage Pubs of the Northwest This definitive and unique new guide is the result of many years’ research by CAMRA to discover pubs that have truly historic surviving interiors in an area ranging from the Cheshire plain to the Lake District. It provides descriptions and information on over 200 pubs, amongst which there are unspoilt country locals, Victorian drinking palaces and might roadhouses. The book has features on how the pub developed, what’s distinctive about pubs in the North West, how people a century ago could expect to be served drinks at their table, and how they used the pub for take-out sales in the pre-supermarket era. Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs throughout, includes county maps showing pub locations. Sheffield’s Real Heritage Pubs Sheffield’s pub heritage seems to have suffered more than most from the modernising carnage of the post-1960s era. Large numbers of its pubs fell into the hands of Bass and Whitbread while John Smith’s strengthened their hold before themselves being taken over by Courage. Swathes of refurbishment were inflicted on a wide scale and even the local companies that survived a little longer, like S.H.Wards, succumbed with no less vigour to the same fashions. The last thirty years has seen some reversing of this trend, as under the influence of the 1989 beer orders, most pubs are now not directly owned by the local brewery. The influence of Wetherspoon is also important. A number of Victorian buildings – banks, cinemas and offices – have also been converted into pubs: the architecture is saved and positive use is made of the building. In addition, a more recent trend has seen some old industrial buildings becoming pubs. Real Heritage Pubs of the Midlands This guide will lead you to the pubs throughout the East and West Midlands that still have interiors or internal features of real historic significance. They range from rural ‘time-warp’ pubs, some with no bar counters, to ornate drinking ‘palaces’, and include some unsung interiors from the inter-war period. This is the first guide of its kind for the Midlands, and it champions the need to celebrate, understand and protect the genuine pub heritage that remains to us. Features on specific aspects of pub design and history – such as ceramics and table-service – supplement the pub entries.
