Britain's Best Real Heritage Pubs
|Britain’s Best Real Heritage Pubs, Geoff Brandwood, CAMRA, 2016, 315 pages, 670 colour illustrations, softback.|
In an age of diminishing pubs and pub going, it is cheering to see the cream of what survives. The new edition of the guide features 260 of the pubs with the most significant interiors as identified by CAMRA’s Pub Heritage Group, and here celebrated with brief but spirited descriptions by Geoff Brandwood. Great is the variety, from glitzy late-Victorian gin palaces to simple back-street drinking dens. The book also contains features that tell the story of the British pub, including a review of those that have made film and TV appearances, and a snapshot of present-day trends.
