Campaign for Real Ale

Launch of South East Heritage Pubs

Friday 17 July 2020

This unique and beautifully illustrated book completes CAMRA’s regional guides to pubs with genuine historic interiors and identifies over 100 key examples throughout the counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Kent, Surrey and East and West Sussex.

Each is described to highlight its special features along with the address, contact details and information about the availability of real ale, real cider and food. Listings range from unspoilt country delights and old coaching inns to cosy Victorian locals and little-known pubs of the inter-war and post-war periods. The many feature articles include one for each county on its lost breweries written by Martyn Cornell.

In addition there are articles about the fantastic ceramics that grace pubs round Portmouth, games at the pub, the history of pump clips, how pubs have changed over the last sixty years, and what smugglers got up to. The illustrations not only show each pub as it is today but also include historic photographs and a number of historic plans. Once pubs start reopening again, these are places to explore and cherish where you can experience at first-hand the pub history of the South East while doing your bit to help protect a vital part of the region’s heritage.
