Camra have launched a great book about Real Heritage Pubs in Wales.
I went along to one of my favourite Cardiff City pub (after the Goat Major), The Old arcade on monday, thanks to Brains for the lovely half of dark and the snacks on the house 😉
Anyway the book is a great celebration of pubs with interiors of special historic interest that are still with us, it’s mad that Wales has over 4000 pubs but only just over 100 with original features.
The book is A5, so handy for your man bag when you are traveling around Wales looking at these great pubs.
Each entry for the pub contains a great photograph taken by Michael Slaughter, a potted history of the pub with info on the interior and facilities ie does the pub do food, its not a replacement for the Good Pub Guide but a great addition if you are on the lookout for a pictorial guide to the best old boozers in Wales.
A bargain at £6.99
Of course my mate Rob is a one man old pub photo machine with his Travels with Beer be good if he put a book out as well 😉
