About The Book
An account of the authors’ road trip around Britain researching the Rough Pub Guide; as well as a deeper investigation into why British pub culture is the toast of the world
George Orwell, a man fond of a pint, used to write about his fantasy pub, The Moon Under Water, in his Evening Standard columns — “two minutes from the bus stop where drunks and rowdies never seemed to find their way … where there was no music and motherly barmaids called you ‘dear’ while pouring pints in red china mugs.” That was the 1940s; today the streets have been taken over by cheapened identical lounge bars (the Wetherspoon’s chain has 14 The Moon Under Waters), and the pub, as a cornerstone of British life, has never been more under threat. What with smoking bans and the cost of a round being roughly equivalent to the price of a multipack from a supermarket, there are something like 57 pubs closing every week. In searching for the perfect pub Paul Moody and Robin Turner head off in pursuit of pubs that fizz with independence and a true frontier spirit, along the way raising a glass to 2,000 years of British brewing history.
