The City of London, the fabled `Square Mile', is the financial hub of world trade. It is also an area with a rich and almost tangible history, a history that is reflected in its colourful and varied selection of pubs and watering holes. The city can boast one of the greatest densities of pubs anywhere in the world, and these pubs range from seventeenth-century taverns dating from just after the Great Fire of 1666 through to swish and hip modern bars catering for today's modern `city worker'. Amazingly there has been no dedicated book about the City of London's pubs in over forty years. Given the area's growing residential population, the hundreds of thousands who work there during the week and the huge number of tourists that visit every year, the time is right for a new guide to the city's diverse and myriad pubs.
As a principal market town, many of Chichester's inns and taverns were established at an early date, including those offering hospitality for pilgrims travelling to the cathedral for worship at the thirteenth-century shine of St Richard. Of nearly all the medieval houses - such as the Tabard, the Star, and the Plough - nothing except names in old documents survives. The number of pub closures has escalated since the 1980s. Yet Chichester still has at least three pubs continuously trading since the eighteenth century, while several others now closed retain original architectural features worthy of note. The deregulation of the trade has also seen the emergence of contemporary cafe-bar-pubs, such as the Belle Isle. David Muggleton takes us on a tour of this compact but elegant city, taking in the classical Georgian Ship Hotel, where General Eisenhower stayed in the lead-up to D-Day; the mid-Victorian Four Chesnuts and the mystery of its missing `T'; the gabled and jettied mock-Tudor Nags Head of 1925; and the Duke & Rye, recently established in a Gothic Revival church building.

Mulligan's is more than a Dublin pub; it is an Irish cultural phenomenon. It has a unique and colourful history, spanning over two hundred years. Mulligan's has hosted the famous - Judy Garland, Seamus Heaney, Con Houlihan, James Joyce, John F. Kennedy - and, indeed, the infamous - police arrested a kidnapper there. Quirkiness pervades its atmosphere. The ashes of a US tourist are interred in its clock. Barmen have seen ghosts on the premises. For decades, performers at the Theatre Royal thronged to Mulligan's, mingling with journalists from 'The Irish Press' who smoked, fumed and interviewed celebrities in it. This fascinating book captures the atmosphere and essence of an Irish institution, loved by both natives and tourists alike.
The Great North Road is part of British folklore, the Route 66 of Britain, except instead of gas stations and diners we have magnificent coaching inns, part of the living history of our islands. Taking in the history of these buildings (including a feature on highwaymen, who often concealed themselves in secret rooms and tunnels in these inns,) as well as the literature that has celebrated them - from Charles Dickens through to J B Priestley - Roger Protz describes these coaching houses with an expert and discerning eye, producing not only a great pub guide but a gazetteer of the history and culture that are draped along this iconic road.
