George Orwell liked pubs. Andrew James Brown LOVES pubs. All pubs!

Taking Orwell’s 1946 essay The Moon Under Water as a starting point, Andrew James Brown looks at the joy of pubs, their essence and their greatness, and, most importantly the people in them.

Why not join him on his colourful journey through pubs great and small, from chain pub to gastro, travelling through city gin-palaces and country inns across parquet flooring and sticky carpet alike.

This humorous look at pubs and people takes in history, philosophy, musings, poems and tales of booze, horse brasses and Morris dancing, all washed down with a warm lager or two.

Do you like pubs? If so, you'll like this. Hopefully.
