The Good Pub Guide is a national institution, published to enormous praise and press each year. After 20 years of reporting on the nation's public houses it knows a good pint when it sees it, recognises a great landlord when it meets one and, increasingly importantly, has witnessed a revolution in the pub kitchens of Britain. To launch a series of Pocket Good Guides and to introduce The Good Pub Guide to an even broader audience Ebury are publishing this easy to use, extremely affordable pocket guide to the best food pubs in Britain. These destination pubs are specifically chosen for the quality of the pub's menu, ingredients and culinary skill. Whether you're after a waterside inn that specialises in Thai food or an urban pub doing old-fashioned British with consummate style the Pocket Good Guide to Great Food Pubs is your new best friend.
