British pub book or website?

Does anyone know of a good book or website that describes and recommends good pubs in Britain? Would like to do some reading up and planning for our upcoming trip. Thanks in advance.

There are only two guides worth considering The Good Pub Guide and The Good Beer Guide. I have both current editions - can't remember the exact prices but the GPG is about 14 or 15 and the GBG is 11 or 12, both available from all reasonable sized bookshops.
GPG is probably better if you are interested in finding quaint pubs that serve reasonable food. GBG is focused on pubs that serve good quality Real Ale and contains info on all the breweries in the UK and their beers. There is quite a bit of overlap between the guides (after all good pubs are likely to sell good beer). In general for any given area of the country the GPG has fewer but more detailed entries compared to the GBG. Which guide you want depends on your interests but IMHO the GPG would serve most beer-uninterested tourists better.
IMO if you are really interested in pubs get off the beaten track and use a guide - there are so many poor pubs in London that survive on transitory visitors I am sometimes ashamed.

I found a great coffeetable book called "Historic Pubs of London," by Ted Bruning. Full of glossy photos, the text describes the history (oftentimes including famous patrons of the past), menu, brews served, etc. of about 100 London pubs of character.

I bought locally, but I'm sure it can be found on Amazon.
