About this title


An intoxicating publication detailing everything and anything there is to know about the traditional pub

Celebrating the many facets of the traditional British pub over the years, this book covers pub characters, pub games, pub fiddles (how the licensee has shafted his customers over the years), pub teams, and pub history from Geoffrey Chaucer to Jeffrey Bernard. It features the great pubs of literature—Robert Louis Stevenson's Admiral Benbow, Daphne du Maurier's Jamaica Inn, and Charles Dickens' The Grapes; the great pubs of film—The Crown Inn at Amersham (Four Weddings and a Funeral), the Crown Inn at Wells (Hot Fuzz); and the great pubs of TV. It features tales of barring, of dodgy deals, of riotous lock-ins, and of strange hauntings. With facts by the barrel and plenty of trivia, this is the perfect present for anyone who loves their pub.
