    Summer Wine Pub Crawl

    I have not been in the Elephant for a long time now. The Postage stamp in the town centre used to keep a good pint. I will have a think and if I get stuck will make a couple of phone calls for advise.

    Don't forget Wigglesworth either. Mentioned twice, once Clegg imagining he was the chap who took a wrong turn in his canoe and discovered America and the supplier of Billy Ingleton's piano (Wigglesworth, Cleckheaton) in his vision.

    Summer Wine Pub Crawl

    There is one close by to me and they have won a national award for 3 years running. It is a nice place. but the prices are just as big a rip-off as the Butchers, also I worked there in the past as Bar/Cellar man and I ended up ringing the brewery to complain about the state of the kitchens. the...

    Summer Wine Pub Crawl

    Warm bread is £3.95,, Soup£5, their 'special' mixed grill £28, £7 for a pudding (or 3 pieces of cheese), oh and if you want veg it's a mere bagatelle at £3 a helping. So if Terry, yourself and I meet up then we can make complete pigs of ourselves at the bargain price of around £50 each, not...

    Summer Wine Pub Crawl

    Not with soup at £5 a bowl I won't. I know some places are dear but that's taking liberties. Do the staff wear tricorn hats, black masks and capes and are called Dick? ;D At least with highwaymen you knew you were going to be robbed, who owns the place? Auntie Wainright and Arkwright?

    Remakes

    Spot on. On the Hancock thing, I seem to recall Paul Merton tried to rehash the episodes in an updated version and it was a disaster. Also they were in the process a few years before of remaking the Hancock's half hour TV episodes with Arthur Lowe in the role of Hancock and James Beck as Sid...

    Ferreting About

    There was another occasion in a much later series when Compo was sat outside the White Horse with Clegg and Foggy and a real ferret appeared from out of Compo's jacket. I think it was 'Next Kiss Please'.

    Remakes

    I totally hate the idea of remakes (shows a dearth of talent in the creative writing department) and you can hardly ever improve on the original, if at all. Just a pathetic way to keep some actors in the limelight (after all, many American actors have an analyst whom they visit regular to tell...

    Summer Wine Pub Crawl

    HI Chuffer. In all honesty I don't think the pubs around there are too much like real pubs any more - a sign of the times I fear. The White Horse is no longer the place it once was - and I first went in there at 7 years old. Since Ron Backhouse retired I have heard that it has declined...
