Now in its 29th year, the definitive reference provides details on more than 5,000 of the very best pubs   The only truly independent guide of its kind, this go-to for the best watering holes features only the very best pubs, thanks to its comprehensive yearly updates and countless reader reports. It contains much more information than other rival guides, including how to get there, what to eat, whether children are welcome, wine and beer recommendations, and even ideas for local walks. Travelers will find classic country pubs, town-center inns, riverside retreats, historic gems, and exciting newcomers, plus pubs specializing in food, wine, malt whisky, or own-brew beer. The top pubs are listed in each county for beer, dining, and accomodation; the cheapest areas for pubs are highlighted as well as tips on how to save money on a pint; and the winners of the coveted titles of Pub of the Year and Landlord of the Year are announced. Clear cross-referenced color maps and zipcodes references help travelers get around.
