"I suggest you check out Great Pubs of London - a delightful coffee table book, photographed by the wonderful Charlie Dailey... It's a beautiful celebration of the capital's most historic watering holes." -Richard Branson, Virgin "When thoughts turn to ale, images from London pubs spring to mind. Embodying that rare quality of romance combined with heritage and 'oblivion of care and freedom from solitude'(from Dr. Samuel Johnson) a London pub delivers as no other can. George Dailey's lavish collection of pubs and stories nearly suffices to re-create that experience so may miles away, while the dark days of winter threaten. Getting lost in the gorgeous photography expands the pleasure of the pint of ale so readily at hand." -All About Beer
