3. THE CHOSEN PUBS

We were on the road for about 3 monthsof 2008 in total, about which you can read by clicking here. We came home with seventy pubs photographed and publicans interviewed. However, in order to give each pub the four to six page spreads we felt they deserved, we had to make some radical decisions in the final furlongs. We just didn't have enough pages to fit them all in. Hence, we had to drop over thirty of the pubs we photographed from the book, any of which would have been perfectly suited to the theme. The 39 pubs that ultimately made the book our listed below. While the essence of every pub was traditional, we included a shorter chapter examining the more contemporary interpretations of that style. The classifications for urban retreats and rural charm were always vague and there are several pubs who could feasibly fit into either chapter.
