The Nags Head

Pelton Road, SE10

Egad! After 100-odd years, the Pelton Arms changes its name? Shock! Horror! I mean I know there’s a new guv’nor, who’s been shaking things up around there (I’ve been hearing very good things about the new feel, and as I passed the other day the little garden at the back looked great – I will be going, I just haven’t got there yet…) but a name change!

But as that truly irritating man on the telly says, Calm down, dear…it’s only a fake pub.

I’m not entirely convinced of the wisdom of creating an Only Fools And Horses spinoff about the early years of Del Boy and Co, but at least they’re filming Sex & Drugs & Rock & Chips round here. Jon discovered the news on the Sun website, of all things, and I guess it could be interesting.

It’s only a one-off special, and according to the website, they’re hoping to get the major stars of the original back as, presumably, relatives of themselves. Maybe a litmus test of whether or not it’s going to be any cop will be if Nicholas Lyndhurst and Sir David agree to appear.

Filming started on Monday (eek – hope it was indoors…) I think I’ll pop down for a nosey later on…
