If they could talk, what stories would pubs tell about themselves? Here is a compendium of tales, making a unique 'crawl' of unusual pubs around Britain. Delve into stories from history and folklore, of notoriety and celebrity, at hostelries where events actually occurred. These are remarkable licensed premises that are far more than places of refreshment. Drink in John Lennon's student local, and the inn where the Brontë sisters' sibling Branwell caroused. See where navy press gangs were outsmarted; the discovery of DNA was heralded; sup where smugglers schemed and Lancashire witches drank their last.
