18 pubs close per week in the UK. Award-winning stand-up and pub aficionado James Dowdeswell – who grew up in a West Country pub – believes humour is the best way to make the plight of the pub public and to generate a response. To source the roots of the problem and to help crystallise what makes the perfect pub, James dissects, discusses and waxes lyrical on every aspect of pub culture. Dowdeswell’s conversational prose style means reading this book is like sitting down with the author and discussing your ultimate pub over a beer.
