    From the 'daft business of Ye Olde' to the pitfalls of the pub quiz and the transformation of mussels into moules mariniere, Gordon Thorburn tackles the history of the English pub in no particular order and with all manner of fascinating digressions. The book is a marvellous pub crawl through myths (debunked in 'Pub Rubbish Korner' articles), the fate of brewers, a discussion of 'pubness' and the origins and oddities of pub names.
