A recent visit to a recommended place in Frome has certainly made us question if certain places are in the guides purely because they have paid to be? Great...

4.0 out of 5 stars How reliable?, 2 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pubs & Inns of England & Wales (ed. 9) (Alastair Sawday's Special Places to Stay) (Paperback)
My husband and I, and also my brother, have always sworn by Sawdays's reviews, until recently that is. We have heard that eateries can now pay to be in Sawdays Guides, making us wonder how reliable they really are. A recent visit to a recommended place in Frome has certainly made us question if certain places are in the guides purely because they have paid to be? Great books, but want to feel that the recommended places have genuinely been tried and tested thoroughly.

I found the discriptions to be accurate, with the proviso - you pay for what you get. I will purchase other Sawday books for other areas/criteria.

This review is from: Pubs & Inns of England & Wales (ed. 9) (Alastair Sawday's Special Places to Stay) (Paperback)
Yes, it is the previous version of the latest Sawday, but things either don't change that much or they can change for better or worse. It's always a gamble going to an unknown pub, but this book and the information it contains is a great help when it comes to selecting where to go. Highly recommended
