New Edition of Bestseller Launched
Every pub in Herefordshire
The third edition of Herefordshire Pubs was launched by Herefordshire CAMRA at Beer on the Wye back in July. If initial sales are anything to go by, then this is going to be another best-seller. The previous two editions both won the CAMRA award for best local guide of the year.
Now in full colur throughout, Herefordshire Pubs covers every pub in the county, but reserves full write-ups for those pubs (thankfully, the vast majority) that sell real ale and cider. Lavishly illustrated, with some fantastic pictures of our most unspoiled pubs, it also has a number of interesting articles to read on topics from the threat to our pubs to the rise of the microbrewery and the history of cider. It also offers the reader a quick reference guide for selecting pubs for that certain occasion: pubs suitable for families; those with gardens; those that sell farmhouse cider or foreign cuisine; riverside pubs and many more. It’s everything you need to be able to explore the richness and variety of the county’s pubs at your leisure.
