Guide Ethos Change,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Good Pub Guide 2013 (Paperback)
Beware! The ethos of the Good Pub Guide has changed. Now, an outstandingly good pub up to "Main Entry" standard has to pay the Guide to be included as a main entry. Otherwise it is relegated to an "also ran" entry and buried in the "Worth a Visit" section. This means that many excellent pubs are now difficult to locate (as they are not included in the map section) unless you know the name of the village and look for a "*" annotation against the pub name. Therefore the usefulness of the Guide has declined significantly. However, this year the editors have reverted to the old layout of listing by counties, making it much easier to use. Pity about the main entry charge though.

saved me money reading the review. I do not trust the impartiality of guides that charge for entry.
