Lavishly illustrated with striking and fascinating full-colour photographs, Classic Pubs of Victoria features an eclectic collection of historic watering holes. The accompanying text portrays a short history of each establishment along with any unusual aspects, such as happenings, famous patrons and even ghosts. The book captures the unique history and culture of Victoria's classic hotels, and would be a treasured gift for anyone who enjoys a quiet beer.

Some of the hotels featured include Apollo Bay Hotel, The Elephant and Wheelbarrow, the Gold Mines Hotel, The Sloaney Pony and The Esplanade Hotel in St Kilda.
