London is full of awful pubs. That’s why you need to know the great ones. Whether you’re after craft brews, fine dining, cosy corners or sun-drenched beer gardens, you’ll find the very best of them in this pithy, pint-sized guide.

Matthew Curtis is an award-winning freelance beer writer and co-founder of the online food and drink magazine Pellicle.

Harry Adès grew up in London next door to – and now lives exactly 36 paces away from – a very fine pub. Despite that, he has written many books, including another in this series: An Opinionated Guide to London Green Spaces.

Photographer Orlando Gili is a born-and-bred Londoner. His most recent photo book, Trivial Pursuits, is also published by Hoxton Mini Press.
