A CAMRA guide is highlighting some of the regions best-kept heritage pubs and their interiors.

For those who like nothing better than a pint in a pub that’s full of character, a free guide has been produced by Camra detailling some of the region’s most charming and quirky public houses.

Pub Interiors of Historic Interest gives a snapshot of pub heritage, detailling 120 East Anglian pubs, such as the Free Press, pictured, in Prospect Row, Cambridge, and its snug, perhaps the smallest in the region.

Paul Ainsworth, chair of the CAMRA National Pub Heritage Group: “Over the past 25 years, CAMRA has developed its national and regional inventories of historic pub interiors. These highlight the crème de la crème of interiors which have either escaped much alteration for many years or contain features of exceptional interest. “

“For example, the Free Press is recommended, if only to see the tiny snug, surely the smallest pub room in Cambridgeshire. The snug is formed by a partition wall with low door and measures approximately 6 ft. x 5 ft. “
