A proper brew, 27 Oct 2008
On first flick through this book I'm already whisked ( or whiskey-ed) away on a heady boozy journey; I can almost taste the ale, peanuts and dog hair. On closer inspection this book is rammed full of nuggets of information and page turning pictures of curious boozers from all over England. Each pub review makes me want to leave my London local 'gastro' and head for a 'real' place of drink whether it be the wonky pub or the old grandma's back room of a pub, as featured in this book. This book reminds us that the days for these kind of pubs are numbered and we should enjoy them whilst they last. Paul Moody and Robin Turner are like some kind of modern day John Betjemans. Don't worry though, there is no poetry in this book... it's still down to earth and unpretentious. Highly recommended, good fun and oddly stylish.
