In this age of continual pub closures, Ted Bruning looks into the opposite - the intriguing question of how, why and when the British pub originates and its development.
The likely drinks available in medieval times are discussed and then the places that people congregate and drink - taverns, alehouses are considered with the differences between town and country development.
Very interesting book probing into the evolution and growth of this great British institution.
