The 2011 Good Beer Guide edited by Roger Protz and published by CAMRA (£15.99) is a good guide for those of us who are travellers using pubs for vital refreshment as in days of old.
Those recommended on the River Thames include the White Cross at Richmond and Boaters just before Kingston Bridge.
Near the Thames Path start there is a mention for the Pilot Inn and the Pelton Arms. The latter is on the temporary diversion at the back of Lovell’s Wharf. The 150 year old Dog & Bell at Deptford is rightly described as ‘much loved’. It’s unique.
The Crown Inn at Lechlade, which gets a mention for its Halfpenny Brewery named after the town’s toll bridge, is a good place for bed and breakfast (£45 or £55 double).
