Book Review

The latest in the series of CAMRA’s Real Heritage Pubs books for the first time covers the South West of Britain. It takes in the area from St Just, Penwith in Cornwall all the way to Marlborough in Wiltshire, featuring over 100 pubs that retain interiors or internal features of real historic significance. The pubs featured range from rural ‘time-warp’ pubs with no bar counters to old coaching inns and unsung interiors from the inter-war and post-war period. It has been edited by Paul Ainsworth, Russ Durbridge and Mick Slaughter and every entry is illustrated with top class photographs.

The book will be launched at the Great British Beer Festival but can also be ordered on-line from the CAMRA shop ( The retail price is £5.99
