In both Doncaster District Pubs and the previously published Doncaster Pubs, Peter Tuffrey enlists the help of friends James Edward Day, Eric Braim and Geoff Elvin, and offers the reader as much information about Doncaster’s pubs as possible: the earliest located reference; opening, rebuilding, alteration and demolition dates. He also details interesting facts about the pubs and the landlords who ran them.


The accompanying illustrations have come from many sources and include architectural drawings as well as photographs from glass plates and picture postcards. Peter’s favourite pub picture is the one of the Star Inn at Conisbrough. It is an incredibly sharp and well composed picture and betrays nothing of what was to happen several years later. The inn caught fire, was completely destroyed and one of the servant girls perished.


Nevertheless, he hopes everyone enjoys the book and Doncaster district pubs have a bright future. He is sure everyone will raise their glasses to that.
