Description
An irreverent and engaging miscellany of pub information, from the origins of bizarre pub names to the history of pub games, this little book is packed with facts about the oldest, the smallest, the highest, and the most remote pubs in Britain, the inns with the grisliest ghosts, and pubs where notorious criminals plotted. Here you'll find the real-life pubs that inspired Charles Dickens, Thomas Hardy, and George Orwell, and retrace the (staggering) steps of Oliver Reed's favorite pub crawl. Visit Robert Louis Stevenson's Admiral Benbow and Daphne du Maurier's Jamaica Inn, the great pubs of film (the Crown Inn at Amersham in Four Weddings and a Funeral), and television pubs like the Queen Vic.
