This guide has gone downhill,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Good Pub Guide 2013 (Paperback)
Sadly having bought and used the Good Pub Guide for many, many years I now have to admit that it's no longer worth getting. Instead of just using reports from customers and the editorial members who have visited the pubs, the editors have recently gone over to charging pubs for full entry into the guide. As a consequence there are now many excellent pubs not included because they won't pay up, and some which are not so great who have paid to get their pubs a main entry. This is a sad day for me - I feel that an old friend has chosen the commercial rather than the ethical route, so I won't be buying this guide again.
