The Longest Crawl
By

Rating
The British love their booze. Ian Marchant - bon viveur, pub singer and writer - sets off to map the British landscape in drink. This mission takes Ian and his friend Perry on a gruelling month-long pub crawl, from the Turk's Head on the Scilly Isles to the Baa Bar in the Shetlands, taking in as many as possible of the British Isles' 60,000 pubs. Theirs is no sober march from south to north but a reeling, meandering trip as they meet up for a drink with poets and comedians, chavs and hedonists, Europe's foremost pub philosopher and Ian's Uncle Tony. This booze-addled, pork-scratching-fuelled trip makes a hilarious and uniquely British travelogue.

Reviews

'The greatest pub crawl ever recorded ... Full of wonderful anecdotes, extraordinary characters and more absurd facts than any pub quiz would throw up' Daily Mirror 'He's an authority on everything. I'll have whatever he's having ... Marchant is just the kind of bloke you'd like to meet down the pub' Daily Telegraph 'This book is funny, clever, informative and as sound as a pound ... buy this man a pint, somebody!' Lynne Truss 'It's the equivalent of one of those long-remembered, unscripted great nights out - without the hangover' Metro
