About the book

In recent years, eating out in Britain has undergone a quiet revolution. The Gastropub has brought us some of the best home cooking we have ever tasted. Many of Britain’s finest chefs have gone back to basics, setting up good food pubs all over the country. They combine regional techniques with first-rate ingredients to bring us the kind of food we want to eat – gutsy dishes such as Fish casserole, Rib of beef with shallots, and Chocolate tart – often using local produce. “The Gastropub Cookbook” features more than 150 of the best pubs from all over Britain and Ireland, and there are over 100 recipes from the top 20 pubs. These recipes are for homely food, much of which is based on traditional British and Irish cooking. The book is divided into regions, and each region features recipes from at least one profiled pub, plus a guide to all the top pubs in the area. This is the first book to really define the gastropub – a relaxed environment in which you can eat gutsy food with a taste of the region. Photographs by Jason Lowe capture the essence of each pub and the wonderful food served in it.
