The Pub – a Cultural Institution
Legendary beer writer Pete Brown presents pubs that ooze atmosphere, be it associated with food, people, architecture, locations or decor. For Pete, the best pubs are those that invite you to stay longer. Some are Victorian palaces, others ancient inns with stunning views across the hills; some are ale havens, others gastropubs. A favoured few are uniquely eccentric, the kinds of places that are just as likely to have terrible reviews on Trip Advisor as great ones, because many people don’t realize that the outside toilets, limp sandwiches on the bar and really disturbing full-size mannequin glaring at you from the corner are all part of the charm.
Discover 300 atmospheric pubs alongside fascinating snippets of local history, pen portraits of punters and publicans, legends, yarns and myths, and a look into trends and types in the pub world.
