The complete history of the public house, from eighteenth-century coaching inns to twenty-first century wine bars. New edition with updated material examining the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and the resultant lockdown on the pub. The pub has been the heart and soul of British life for centuries. But how has this unique institution changed over the last few hundred years? Paul Jennings traces the history of the British pub, and looks at how it evolved from the eighteenth century's coaching inns and humble alehouses, back-street beer houses and 'fine, flaring' gin palaces to the drinking establishments of the twenty-first century. Covering all aspects of pub life, this fascinating history covers pubs in cities and rural areas, seaports and industrial towns. It identifies trends and discusses architectural and internal design, the brewing and distilling industries and the cultural significance of drink in society. Looking at everything from music and games to opening times and how they have affected anti-social behaviour. The Local is a must-read for every self-respecting pub-goer, from landlady to larger-lout.
