Gloucester is a city with a long and distinguished history and throughout time it has had more than its fair share of interesting pubs. This book identifies more than 600 pubs, going back as far as the thirteenth century; it explores the most interesting of these, past and present, and their connection to the city's history.

Darrel Kirby examines the links that the earliest inns have with the cathedral, and the role pubs have played in the social, political and commercial life of the city. Discover pubs with links to Edward II and Henry III, and luminaries such as George Whitfield, Dick Whittington and pioneer of Sunday Schools, Robert Raikes.

Explore nautical links with Francis Drake's Golden Hind and the Pilgrim Fathers' Mayflower, and literary links with Beatrix Potter's Tailor of Gloucester.

Reminisce about those much-cherished pubs that are no longer with us, and join us for a drink in those that are.
