Product description

Review

‘Pete Brown is a brilliant master of ceremonies as he brings the history of these fine institutions to life and demonstrates their importance in working class communities across the country.’ Alan Johnson, author of This Boy

‘A compelling mixture of social history, vivid reportage and candid autobiography, Clubland makes a crucial contribution to our understanding of Britain in the last century and a half.’ David Kynaston, author of Austerity Britain

‘This is not a romantic book, lost in misty memories. It is a deeply political one. Warm, witty, Brown writes this study with humour, but also rage.’ The Observer

‘Pete Brown writes poetically and with great authority on a slice of culture that has been ignored or derided for many years. He illuminates these arts centres, debating halls and palaces of carefree delight with love and care.’ Ian McMillan, author of Neither Nowt Nor Summat

'At last the working men's club gets its turn in the cultural spotlight. Pete Brown has written an important history and a heartfelt tribute to the friendship, organisation, humour and community to be found in these remarkable institutions.’ Ian Clayton, author of It's The Beer Talking: Adventures in Public Houses

Praise for Pete Brown…

‘The beer drinkers’ Bill Bryson.’ Times Literary Supplement

‘Brimming with fascinating stories and forgotten characters.’ The Guardian

‘Brown’s enthusiasm is infectious.’ The Sunday Times

‘Brown’s writing has a pleasingly loose-limbed feel.’ The Observer

‘Brown writes beautifully … his observations are fresh and provocative.’ Financial Times

‘Big beery fun.’ The Times

‘Engaging.’ Daily Mail

‘Part Nigel Slater, part Bill Bryson, and wholly delicious.’ Mail on Sunday

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Pete Brown is a British writer, journalist, broadcaster and consultant specialising in food and drink, especially the fun parts like beer, pubs, cider, bacon rolls, and fish and chips.

Across twelve books, his broad, fresh approach takes in social history, cultural commentary, travel writing, personal discovery and natural history, and his words are always delivered with the warmth and wit you’d expect from a great night down the pub.

He writes for newspapers and magazines around the world and is a regular contributor to BBC Radio 4’s Food Programme. He was named British Beer Writer of the Year in 2009, 2012, 2016 and 2021, has won three Fortnum & Mason Food and Drink Awards, and has been shortlisted twice for the Andre Simon Awards.

He lives in London with his wife Liz, and dog Mildred.
