A pub from classic comedy show Only Fools and Horses has been recreated – and fans can visit for a pint!
Show star Gwyneth Strong, who played Cassandra – Rodney’s wife – opened the recreation of the iconic Nags Head pub today to mark the 40th anniversary of the much-loved sitcom.
She was joined by Philip Pope, who played Tony Angelino on the show, and Andree Bernard, who played barmaid Nervous Nerys.
Comedy TV channel Gold are behind the pop-up pub, which opens to the public from today for three days only. The Nags Head has been lovingly recreated to be true to the series, from the striped wallpaper and chequered floor down to the framed pictures, stuffed rabbit, horse bronzes and trinkets which adorned Del and Rodney’s local boozer.
Gwyneth Strong, said: “I can’t believe it’s been 40 years since the show first aired. There is such a loyal fan base and they are going to love this, it’s like going back in time and being back in the original pub!”
The Nags Head is open for business in London today, tomorrow and Saturday.
The pop up pub is in London, WC1N 2PB and the exact location will be confirmed to ticket holders. For free tickets see www.gold.uktv.co.uk/nagshead
