Description

One of Newcastle's oldest and best-loved pubs has made it into a photography book celebrating the country's best boozers. So, to conclude, this is my kind of pub. Traditional but not remotely seedy with friendly welcoming staff, a welcoming and inviting interior with good honest, quality pub grub. The next time I am in London I will be popping in again for a bar meal and a glass of wine. Other info: Thanks to the amazing Stuart Husband and awesome Creative Director,Lars Harmsen to get this down on paper & all at Prestel Publishing & all the incredible whisky folks . Three centuries on, the English pub remains the ultimate happy place for those seeking refuge, recreation, or refreshment.But pubs today constitute a broad church, with old-school saloons and ultimate locals joined by modern reimaginings of traditional hostelries and Michelin-starred gastro-temples.

Whittling it down to 33 of the country’s finest and most distinctive inns, this book takes an in-depth look at pubs in every corner of the country, featuring striking photography by acclaimed photographer Horst and text by seasoned journalist Stuart. scotchmaltwhisky #drinksphotography #scotland #scotch #horstfriedrichs #distillery #singelmalt #prestel It’s very difficult to get barred from here, but it can get quite interesting at times,” says landlord Henry Conlon. He recalls the night that a trench-coated couple came in, removed their outerwear to reveal their naked bodies, and clambered onto one of the bar tabletops to indulge in a short but energetic bout of congress (“everyone else just carried on drinking – I mean what else could you do?”).

Success!

Quite eager to experience The Fox and Pheasant, we arrived on the dot of midday. As the first ones in we got a good opportunity to take it all in. The owner, James Blunt – yes, the James Blunt says in the book that ‘his main job was to make this place beautiful’. Well, he succeeded. James and his team have done an amazing job, considering this seventeenth century coaching inn previously had a reputation for being insalubrious and know amongst locals as the Fox and Unpleasant. Our thoughts on The Fox and Pheasant From Yorkshire to Swindon, Liverpool to Norfolk, and in every corner of London, England’s illustrious pub culture is celebrated with stunning photography and captivating texts by one of the country’s preeminent travel writers.

SCOTCH The stories behind Scotland's Iconic spirit ,Photographer Horst A. Friedrichs and writer Stuart Husband explore the venerable and continually evolving story of Scotch whisky by highlighting sixteen distilleries dotted around the country, from Campbeltown to Speyside, from the Highlands to the islands, and from rural outposts to city centres. Ranging from the ancient floor maltings of the legendary Springbank distillery to the single malts being produced by a new generation of Scotch pioneers, they pay homage to the time-honoured traditions of whisky production while showing how today's distillers are putting their own contemporary spin on Scotland's iconic spirit. They said of their new collaboration: "W e explore the infinite variety of England's pubs and celebrate their idiosyncratic glory in words and pictures. The English pub is an abiding obsession." This arrived yesterday and after raising a dram to celebrating the book, I'm delighted to share a wee look at our Scotch book with you!!A cookie set by YouTube to measure bandwidth that determines whether the user gets the new or old player interface. Or the time when thrash core band Cradle of Filth carried a coffin through the pub, out of which popped a topless woman who sprayed the audience with fake blood. On such occasions, says Conlon, his octogenarian mother Peggy, who still lives above the premises, has the perfect response: “She gets her holy water out and starts spraying the place, saying her Hail Marys.”

As Madness themselves said, apropos of ‘Our House’ but with equal relevance to the pub that remains their alma mater: “There’s always something happening, and it’s usually quite loud.” pub #pubs #england #greatpubsofengland #prestel #english #horstfriedrichs #book #boozer #freehouse #beer #pint #publichouse #community #heritage #travel #gastropub #uk #ale #real #local #photography #coffeetabelbook #photobook If the Great Pubs of England book is to be believed, Blunt himself threw himself into renovating his pub, rolling up his sleeves and getting his hands dirty. I would love to sit down with him, and chat about his renovation journey and pub design decisions. Over a glass of wine of course. I’d love to compare notes and pore over colour charts. Looking at the walls and accessories, I can see someone’s been busy collecting art, accessories, and ephemera. I feel we’d have a lot in common.
