Tales from the Country Pub Summary

Real ale, a hearty lunch, and a good dose of village gossip! That's what the traditional country pub once offered; but has that changed? Brian Martin traveled all through Britain to see, and he returns with many a tale and an illustrated record of rural richness and color. You'll eagerly drink up stories about the landlord who found an unusual way to warn fishermen of an arriving bailiff and the farmer who blew a hole in his friend's hat after filling an ashtray with gunpowder...not to mention the smallest pub in England and one with no name!
