As usual... VERY useful,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Good Pub Guide 2013 (Paperback)
Already used to winkle out some lovely little stop-over pubs to stay in, so up to the usual standard.
My only gripe is on-going with the publishers and it's a "local" gripe.
They insist on including all Wirral peninsula pubs in with the Lancashire chapter. Historically, the Wirral has NEVER been in Lancashire and, in fact, was a part of Cheshire; all of Wirral areas still have a "CH" postcode. This has caused many people to miss out on excellent pubs in this region. In one case, I recommended a visit to a certain pub on the Wirral to a friend and he could not find the entry in the Guide.... of course it was stuck there in Lancashire for some reason. Inaccuracies like this are irritating.
Also the addition of Latitude/Longitude entries as well as Grid References would be useful.
However, this remains an invaluable volume. I don't leave on a trip without consulting it first and and it always accompanies us on said trips. Keep up the good work Alistair and Fiona.
