Overview

From its source in sleepy Gloucestershire, the Thames runs nearly 180 miles - past the spires of Oxford, Royal Windsor and eventually on to the bustle of London. Thanks to its recently renovated towpath, the Thames has become the only major British river that can be walked from its source to its estuary - the Thames Barrier. The path is one of the busiest trails in the country. The pubs (all within a few hundred yards of the river) cover a wide range from Cotswold stone country inns and thatched riverside taverns to the traditional establishments in the City and East End of London. The journey is split into 10 chapters with a map at the beginning of each section. The book deals with over one hundred pubs in detail and features many others in passing. Fully revised and updated, it is the only comprehensive guide to the pubs of the Thames and a magnificent visual companion containing 150 specially-commissioned, stunning photographs of both pub interiors and exteriors. In addition to providing lively social history of the river and its inns, Pubs of the River Thames is a practical guide for the day-tripper and tourist alike, offering tips and details on all the pubs featured (travel, opening hours, food and beer selections and other facilities).
