These days I would say he is only half right. There remain over 56,000 pubs in Great Britain, half of which are filled with youngsters who play loud music on a jukebox that sounds like somebody is hitting his lawnmower with a hammer, while the next-door neighbour shouts at him over the fence.

The other half, however, are the perfect place to while away an afternoon with a pint and fine conversation while quietly contemplating what to do next. Well, that’s what I do.The pub histories told in this collection are some of my favourite pubs and are extracts from my popular book The Old Dog and Duck (There are many more histories in there.) So take a seat in your favourite armchair by the fireside and join me on a pub crawl along memory lane and around history corner.
