Great Pubs of England

ISBN: 9783791388878 (HB - EN)

From Yorkshire to Swindon, Liverpool to Norfolk, and in every corner of London, England's illustrious pub culture is celebrated with stunning photography and captivating texts by one of the country's preeminent travel writers. Few places are as inviting as an English pub, and this beautiful book shows readers exactly why that is. As in their previous collaboration, Bookstores, Stuart Husband and Horst Friedrichs showcase the beauty and singularity of their subject matter. Gorgeous, expertly lit photographs of centuries-old snugs, elegant marble bartops, richly wood-panelled anterooms and pressed tin ceilings convey the warmth and deep tradition that's kept these establishments going for nearly five hundred years. Snuggle into a curtained booth at the Boleyn Tavern; enjoy the gleaming copper-topped tables, stained-glass windows, and red Chesterfield-style seating of Whitelock's Inn; or duck into the Dog and Duck-where George Orwell celebrated the publication of Animal Farm. Along the way readers will discover what makes an English pub the kind of place where you'll want to linger for just one more pint, where you don't mind standing cheek-to-jowl with the regulars, where conversation flows as freely as the ale. More than just a travel guide, this virtual pub crawl documents and memorialises an important and rapidly changing aspect of Britain's national heritage. HORST FRIEDRICHS' photographs have appeared in the Independent, The New York Times, and Stern. Prestel has successfully published eight of his books including: I'm One-20th Century Mods (2009); Or Glory-21st Century Rockers (2010); Cycle Style (2012), Best of British (2016), and Bookstores (2021). He lives in London. STUART HUSBAND is a Brighton-based travel journalist whose work has appeared in Monocle, Four Seasons, the Telegraph, Observer, Sunday Times, and the Independent. He is the author of Bookstores, with Horst A. Friedrichs.
