Format: Hardcover
This is a most interesting book. I bought it as a present for my partner. He loves books about old classic heritage pubs and real ale inns in the United Kingdom. We regularly travel out to these pubs and other buildings of historic interest in towns and villages in the counties of Herefordshire, Worcestershire, The Golden Valley and beyond...

I would recommend trying to buy the hardback editions, with the original dust jackets if available as they will hold their re-saleability, and they look much nicer too!Village Pub (Country Series)

HASH(0x9e3d2aec) out of 5 stars A PINT OF LAGER MATE? CHEERS! 30 Oct. 2000
By skeptic - Published on
Format: Paperback
Well, I suppose that's how it was many hundreds of years ago much as it is today. Visit the small, obscure English pub from days of yore! Gorgeous attention to detail, beautiful, clear color photographs and descriptions of each pub's unique qualities. Just like the book entitled "A Panorama of England", this book is a fantastic coffee table book. What I liked best about the book is how the author's provide information about the history of the local breweries that supply the individual pubs and what the specialty beers and ales of the area are. I never realized there were so many different kinds! There are also descriptions of the various pub games offered at the different establishments, games which have been played for hundreds of years and most of the pubs still have the authentic furniture and interior decor. There is a wonderful description of the fireplaces that warm these cheery haunts and you get the feeling that the people there must have wonderful stories to tell. It would be an ideal book to take on vacation if you go to England because each photo also has the name and county as a caption and this would make it easy to find and you can use it as a companion to the "Panorama of England" book and truly step back in time to taste great ales and view some breathtaking scenery. It's amazing how the history of the village pubs and ale houses stretches back so many hundreds of years and the famous people who have been reputed to have visited many of them. This information adds a truly mystical dreamy quality and makes this a wonderful book to explore. I actually have read the descriptions of all the pubs as I would a novel and loved the enriching experience. Written in a clear style with adequate interesting information alongside excellent photographs.... well, need I say more! So pour that pint of English bitter, put your foot up on the stool and take in the wonderful, cheery experience!

Used this as a guide to design our basement. Were able to convince our township office that this was an acceptable design using this book.
