09:34 pm - Pub quiz
Here is a quiz about pubs in British telly and film. I will hide comments and give answers later.

What is the name of the pub in...

1) Steptoe and Son
2) Emmerdale
3) The Likely Lads
4) Coronation Street
5) East Enders
6) Withnail and I
7) American Werewolf in London (it's in Yorkshire)
8) Shaun of the Dead (named after something hanging behind the bar)
9) Minder (it's a private club)
10) Only Fools and Horses

Bonus question: What was the name of the pub Jez and Super Hans were planning to set up, in Peep Show (I had to Google this)

I'll post answers probably on Sunday.

I think it's fairly hard so do have a go even if you only know one or two. Oh, and if you want to suggest further questions in the comments that would be great too.

(ETA me and H devised this in the pub tonight, and my daughter added a couple when we got home)

Extra questions suggested in comments

despotliz: the name of the pub in Life on Mars (communicator's clue - also mentioned in the Squeeze song Up The Junction)

getawaywithit, who is currently in the lead: the wine bar in Ashes to Ashes.

katlinel: the pub that Ford and Arthur have a drink in before the Vogons destroy the Earth in Hitchikers (does it have a name?)

katlinel also: the pub where Hugh Grant's and Andie Macdowell's characters fuck for the first time in Four Weddings and a Funeral

You two gave exactly the same answer at the same time - obviously well attuned to each other

I'm rubbish at these. I can only offer:

4) Rovers Return
5) Queen Vic

I've never watched either, though, so I might not even have them right....

7) The Slaughtered Lamb

8) The Winchester (Tavern or Arms, don't remember)

I'm sure I should remember the one from Withnail and I but, alas, do not.

Considering that I have not seen a single one of those shows/movies, no, I am not going to try.

Wow, good quiz. I only know a few of them. White text to avoid spoiling anyone.

4) The Rover's Return
5) The Queen Victoria
8) The Winchester
10) The Nag's Head

No clue whatsoever about any of the others, even though I've seen bits of all of them.

2 is the Woolpack, 4 the Rovers' Return, 5 the Queen Victoria, 7 the Slaughtered Lamb and 8 and 9 are both the Winchester, IIRC. Life on Mars has The Railway Arms, while Ashes to Ashes has Luigi's.

Jez wanted 'The Swan' and Hans wanted 'Free all paedos' (to give it an edgy vibe) so they compromised with The Swan and Paedo

However, one was their main pub. H used to go there when he was a student, or so he claims. Do you remember the pub in Steptoe and Son?
