About The Author

Geoff Brandwood

Geoff Brandwood

Geoff is the author of CAMRA’s Pub heritage titles which list in detail hundreds of pubs of architectural and historical importance.

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 unspoiled 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 ambiance.
