Discover heritage pubs across the South East with CAMRA’s latest title

New book completes UK-wide coverage of heritage pubs

The Campaign for Real Ale has now covered every corner of the UK with the publication of its latest pub guide, Real Heritage Pubs of the South East.

Edited by pub heritage expert Geoff Brandwood, this unique guide will lead you to over 100 pubs throughout the South East that still have interiors or internal features of real historic significance. Listings range from unspoilt country delights and old coaching inns to cosy Victorian locals and little-known pubs from the inter-war and post-war periods. Illustrated with high-quality photography throughout, this book allows you to experience first-hand the pub history of the South East while doing your bit to help protect a vital part of the region’s heritage.

Editor and historic pubs expert Geoff Brandwood said: “As a period of great uncertainty for the nation’s pubs hopefully comes to a close, it’s a real delight to release the final instalment of the Real Heritage Pub guide series.

“This guide highlights the best-preserved pubs across the South East region, allowing you experience pub history even if you’re unable to visit them in person right nowIt also champions the need to celebrate, understand and protect the genuine pub heritage we have left, and revenue raised from the title goes back into CAMRA campaigning.

Every listing in the guide includes a pub description, highlighting its special features and the address, contact details and information about the availability of real ale, real cider and food. Pubs are arranged by county, with maps showing their location and there are numerous feature articles about pub and brewing history in the area.

Real Heritage Pubs of the South East is 136 pages, and includes over 200 glossy pictures, for the price of £7.99 (£5.99 for CAMRA members).
