Coffee houses are now once again a familiar sight in London's high streets. They are the latest manifestation of an institution which began in the seventeenth century. Ads from the Restoration, London was awash with coffee houses. They were used not only for refreshment, but for business, auctions, medical treatment, news gathering hiring servants or just conversation. They were considered dangerously radical places by the authorities. In the 19th century the Temperance bourn introduced coffee taverns to wean drinkers away from gin palaces. In the 1950s came the coffee bars dispensing new kinds of coffee accompanied by new music -- skiffle and rock and roll -- in crowded basements. And of late new chains of coffee houses, with predictable decor and little atmosphere, have invaded London. This major survey of the coffee houses is the most authoritative yet published, and is accompanied by many illustrations.

Seven drinking buddies decide to buy a racehorse and embark on the journey of a lifetime in the book that inspired the film Outside Bet. It's 1985 - Thatcher is in power, Sade is on the radio and the print workers have gone on strike. A motley rabble of seven firm friends: Thimble, Gudger, O'Sh, Fred the Shoe, Dave, Alfie and Bax meet every Sunday in their favourite South London boozer for banter of the highest order and a lot of taking the mick. Then, out of the blue, one of their number receives some news which knocks him and his merry band for six. Reeling from this shock and confused about how to deal with it, the boys meet and rally in standard fashion, in the Dutchman with a few light ales and an aim to set the world to rights. One day an unknown character approaches the crew and asks them a most intriguing question...'Does anyone here want to buy a racehorse?!' From that simple but surreal question unfolds the story of seven likely lads who embark on a unique journey in the name of their mate, and what happens when they just decide to go the whole bifta.
