What’s in the free August issue of Gasholder?

Our summer special is packed with inspiring ideas for days out. Plus we meet a debut stand-up comic, a debut novelist – and a longtime pub landlord

Issue 18 GH cover
Most readers will now be aware of the raft of new pubs, restaurants and cafes springing up in and around King’s Cross and St Pancras,

But it’s worth supporting the longstanding options too. In this issue we meet Gerry McGlynn, who’s been at the helm of his traditional Irish boozer, tucked away off the Euston Road, for a quarter of a century.

Elsewhere in our summer special it’s business as usual, as we highlight the ten must-do things this month, from outdoor cinemas to urban beaches, art shows to bee trails.

We uncover more new arrivals, including Smoke & Salt, a pop-up in an unusual location in N1, and The Edward Lear, a revamped watering hole on Holloway Road. And don’t miss the rundown of some excellent neighbourhood pubs – just a bit off the beaten track.


What else? We let debut author Simon Booker, and wannabe stand-up comedian Brendan Hodrien, tell us about their first time on page and stage respectively.

And finally, further afield, we check out Xiringuito in Margate, give you the heads up on Folkestone’s War And Peach Revival festival, and outline some of the best places to eat in Port Isaac, Cornwall.

Phew! Grab your copy from the outlets below:
