CAMRA: Hammersmith’s Dove & Cricklade’s Red Lion

Adrian Tierney-Jones new book CAMRA’s Great British Pubs includes two Thames pubs among his 200 reviews.

The well-illustrated paperback (CAMRA Books £14.99) has The Dove at Hammersmith down as maybe having “reputedly one of the smallest bars in the kingdom” although that could challenged by The Rake in Borough Market.

The Rake is also featured and could almost be a Thames path pub being just one road back from Southwark’s Clink Street.

The surprise in the book is the Red Lion at Cricklade described as a “rambling town inn”. The entry concludes with: “Five en suite rooms available, from £75 per night, including breakfast.”
