Nothing beats a good movie pun, except perhaps two movie puns stitched together. Some people may consider it to be a lowly form of expression, but you won’t find any of those people around here. Heck, when even the idea of a ‘Squeakquel’ brings a grin to your face, a whole gallery of movie punning restaurants, bars and vintners is a guaranteed day-maker. With some glee, therefore, we present you exactly that, complete with our best-guess tips on what to order. See you on Hamburger Hill...

Got a better movie restaurant pun? Let us know in the comment bow below.

Some nice stuff, some may be in line for lawsuits. We also have a Thai Tanic in Sydney and is not necessarily based on the movie but the actual ship. Similarly Lox Stock... - it has nothing to do with the Ritchie movie. Aside from these there's a coffee table book here... More

4 My favourite...
I once heard of an Indian restaurant called 'Balti Towers'. Whilst I realise it's not a film reference it's a cracker & always makes me chuckle! More

8 Interesting...
...that these places affectionately reference films, yet when The Saul Zaentz Company doesn't want pubs using LOTR references it's bad! More
