Written by Tim Hampson, the guide features 100 different pubs from the English countryside of Walton-on-Thames on the western edge of London through the main tourist areas of Westminster and the City of London and onto Greenwich and as far east as the Thames Barrier.
The book is full colour throughout and each pub features at least two, and in most cases, three high quality photographs. Each review is well researched and features both information about the pub interior and exterior, it’s location and a history. Whilst it’s impossible to publish an accurate list of beers available at each pub, the inclusion of either the brewery that owns the pub or examples of beers found there does give a good indication of what you are likely to find there.
The pubs are separated into six different sections – Freshwater Thames (for pubs in the west), Teddington to Putney, Chelsea to Tower Bridge, Tower Bridge Southside, Tower Bridge Northside and Canalside/River Lea. Each section begins with a map should you wish to walk between any of the pubs.
At the beginning of the book is handy guide that helps you find pubs that are steeped in history, those that sell real ale or good food or pubs that have the bes beer gardens and views. Unfortunately, the book doesn’t have an index which does make it difficult to find a specific pub.
