Item description for COUNTRY PUBS AND INNS OF WALES (Country Pubs & Inns) by Barbara Vesey...
Country Pubs and Inns of Wales is the first title in a series of guides which will eventually cover the whole of the UK (the guides covering England will be published by county). The guide provides details of pubs (including inns and hotels which welcome non-residents) situated in the countryside of Wales. "Countryside" is officially defined as settlements of less than 10,000 inhabitants.
There are, of course, many selectively-based pub guides covering the UK but each title in the Country Pubs and Inns series will provide the reader with the most comprehensive choice of pubs in the countryside. In addition to the name, address and telephone number many of the entries will provide details of real ales, food, accommodation and facilities such as opening times, entertainment, parking, gardens and children's play areas as well as directions on how to get there and local attractions.
The Contents of the Country Pubs and Inns of Wales is based on a county or sub-county which allows the reader to select their preferred area of Wales being visited. Each chapter begins with a brief illustrated summary of the places of interest in the area and a map containing the numbered location of every country pub. By using the number the reader can then find more information on their choice of pub.

Replaceable with a local phone book May 19, 2008
I bought this as an aid for an upcoming trip to northern Wales. My wife and I eat many of our meals in local pubs as we travel about, so having a pub guide is almost a necessity.
What I found in this book was information that could have been gathered from a local phone book... listings of addresses and phone numbers and little more. About 5% of the listings have an expanded description that seems to have been written by the pub staff rather than the author.
It would be vastly improved if it contained some ratings on food and atmosphere as well as any cask ales that were available. As it is, I didn't even bother to take this book on my trip.
