East End Pubs

In the last decade, London's East End has seen some of the highest rates of pub closures in Britain. Once bastions of the local community, where neighbours living cheek-by-jowl could convene over a pint, the traditional East End pub is in danger of becoming a relic.

It's time to halt the tide and celebrate these great pubs so we don't lose them forever. From wet led backstreet boozers to gastropubs serving local produce and craft ale, this book celebrates the rich histories, snug bars, welcoming Guv'nors, florid carpets, loyal punters and inventive landladies of these unique and cherished institutions.
