Frome is one of Somerset's most historic towns, yet this is the first book devoted to its inns. Starting at the long-lost Albion Inn on Cheap Street and ending at the elusive Wyredrawers Arms on Portway, the authors tell the story of over a hundred inns, alehouses, taverns, hotels and beerhouses, creating nothing less than an alternative history of the town. Grand coaching inns played a major role in the social, political and economic life of Frome, while backstreet beerhouses and wayside taverns were central to the lives of generations of working people. For anyone interested in Frome, or in pubs, this fascinating book will be an indispensable and enjoyable guide to an unjustly neglected aspect of the town's history.
