The Good Pub Guide 2011
CAMRA’s Great British Pubs is a new book by Adrian-Tierney Jones that features over 200 of the best pubs in the country.

CAMRA’s Great British Pubs book is a collection of the best pubs that the UK has to offer (and there are a lot!). Rather than listing the pubs by geographic location, Adrian has organised them into useful categories such as ‘The Best Beer Ranges’, ‘The Best City Pubs’, ‘The Best Heritage Pubs’ and ‘The Best Pub Near Motorways’. There are 23 categories in all each with an introduction and map showing the locations of the pubs.

The sections feature between 6 and 12 pubs and each pub has a page dedicated to it. Adrian does a great job of describing the location and history of each pub along with interior and what beers or ciders you are likely to find there. All listings are illustrated with a photograph including one that has also featured in the Bunch of Grapes review on this site.

A huge variety of pubs and brewpubs are represented in the book such as the award-winning Southampton Arms, London, the scenic Goose and Cuckoo, south Wales, the traditional Old Green Tree, Bath and the Fat Cat, Norwich with its huge selection of beer.

As well as the pub reviews there are 14 features spread throughout the book. Some discuss the role of the pub and its origins, others how important pubs are to communities. There are also three pub walks to complete in London, Edinburgh and the Lake District.
