Classic Town Pubs – a CAMRA guide

A friend gave me this 1988 publication last week.  Checked out the SE of England, and (working from Dover to Portsmouth along the coast) it has:

The White Horse Inn at Dover – “its seen better days but the threadbare carpet and peeling wallpaper seem to augment . . . the character and atmosphere of the pub”

Then it mentions the Mermaid at Rye and the Cinque Ports at Hastings before saying:

“The ornate pleasure domes of the Brighton Pavilion are compulsory viewing.  I’d like to suggest a classic pub, but I haven’t found one there yet.”

Next stop is the George in Portsmouth, “the last surviving 18th century tavern in the city”.
