Ipswich is a brewery town. The administrative centre of the agricultural county of Suffolk, world famous for its barley and brewing, Ipswich was for decades the home of the Cobbold (later Tolly Cobbold) brewery, which was not only a prominent local employer but influenced the development of the town, through the Cobbold family's interest in and patronage of sport, the arts, and politics. Ipswich is also a town of pubs. From the Middle Ages, when its taverns were filled with pilgrims to its famous shrine and many religious houses, through to the twentieth century when local brewers provided refreshment to factory workers and visitors to the busy port. This book is a record of that history - Ipswich's breweries, public houses, taverns and inns, many of which no longer exist. It uses historical records and local sources to bring them back to life as an intrinsic part of the town's history and culture, bringing it right up to date with a look at its thriving present-day pub scene, illustrated by a large number of old and new photographs.

Pubs were an important part of our social history because they were, and still are to some extent, the working man's front parlour. In the pub or beer house our ancestors could meet with their friends, with an endless supply of liquid refreshment to dull their senses and blot out the misery of their daily grind.The pubs of Nuneaton were, and still are, a resort of comfort in times of relaxation, in distress and marital infidelity. Back then they became political headquarters, a home of sporting clubs and friendly societies and a venue for entertainments such as darts and dominoes - which were all taken seriously. Pub-goers, like actors on a stage, played out their part at the bar as the soap opera of their lives was forgotten. In Nuneaton Pubs, Peter Lee explores how public houses thrive today, with a new clientele, new decor, and different (or indifferent) beer, and shows that the pub continues to form an essential and integral part of the history and social fabric of our towns.
Oxford is famous for offering an 'Education in Intoxication'. The city's historic and picturesque pubs have been frequented by countless visitors, ranging from local students to movie stars such as Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Home to some of the finest ales in Britain, Oxford is a must for any connoisseur of ale or fan of the traditional English pub. From the famous riverside to the outskirts of the city centre, the author provides an indispensable guide to Oxford's pubs. The book is filled with fascinating stories and photographs that illustrate why these establishments deserve to be on all discerning drinkers' must-visit lists. For instance, did you know some of Oxford's pubs were once home to exotic animals, perhaps most bizarrely a shark? It is easy to be overwhelmed by the vast choice, but from the watering hole of 'The Inklings' to the set of Inspector Morse, Dave Richardson proves that these traditional and welcoming pubs have something to suit any need.
Canterbury is a colourful and cosmopolitan city that manages to combine a rich and often dramatic history with a vibrant contemporary feel. You'll find no better illustration of this coming together of the old and the new than in the city's diverse variety of pubs. From hostelries of genuine antiquity through to battered old backstreet boozers, and from cutting-edge brewpubs to craft-beer bars, this cathedral city really does offer something for everyone. People have been enjoying the hospitality offered by Canterbury's many watering holes since before the city was immortalised by Chaucer back in the fourteenth century. Today that reputation continues as a teeming mix of locals, students, tourists and modern-day pilgrims look to quench their thirst. From bustling alehouses that maintain a live music scene echoing the Canterbury sound of the late 1960s, through to traditional taverns offering a more sedate atmosphere redolent of a seemingly bygone age, this book will guide you through the city's unique pub landscape.
Public houses, taverns and inns have been around for hundreds of years. From the inns that thrived on marketday trade to those on the old stage-coach routes, Huntingdonshire had a wide range of welcoming establishments and in 1900 had over 250 pubs, in addition to the numerous beer houses which were often run from the front rooms of ordinary houses. Labourers needed plenty of beer to keep them going - it was far safer to drink than the water! With images drawn from the Huntingdonshire Archives, the Norris Museum and private photographers, this book offers a captivating glimpse into the history of each pub. Many of them have now disappeared, some have been demolished to make way for new development and others have become private dwellings with no trace of their past remaining. The authors take you on a nostalgic tour of Huntingdonshire pubs.

Told through the history of its barbecue is the story of the city of Memphis, from legendary joints like Leonard's Barbecue, where Elvis Presley hosted private parties, to lesser-known places like William's Bar-B-Q in the West Memphis, Arkansas neighborhood where wild, late-night blues juke joints served as a red-light district across the river from Beale Street in the 1950s and '60s. Sink your teeth into this rich history chock-full of interviews and insights from the city's finest pitmasters and 'cue gurus who continue the long tradition of creating art with meat and flame.
