The Most Dangerous Pub Crawl In Cinema | The Horse And Groom
The Horse And Groom

Film: The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy (2005)

Location: London
Opening hours: 11am until the construction of a hyperspace bypass commences (the plans have been on display in the planning office on Alpha Centauri for the previous fifty years, you know)
Clientele: Cheery regulars and a middle-aged woman in leopard print trousers
Entertainment: Perry Como and drinks on Ford Prefect (who looks a lot like Mos Def)
Price of a round: Six pints of bitter cost less than a tenner. Get in! Also remember to buy a pack of salted peanuts, it'll help with the headache

In terms of places to visit when you have just minutes to live, The Horse And Groom wouldn’t be the first choice of many. This little country pub, while the epicentre of an apocalypse, has a certain tired charm to go with its easily duped barman and cheap beverage. It's as good a place as any to reminisce about those happy times with Zooey Deschanel.

2 The Ninth Configuration Bar-Room Brawl Scene
Just a small clip, but this is one of the tenses bar scene I've ever seen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bn7mLy2Qtqo More

3 No Karova Milk Bar???
Seriously guys and girls!?!? Where's the Karova Milk Bar, from Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange"? It's probably the most obvious oversight you've ever made. More

4 Slaughtered lamb
As long as this one was included I'm happy, could have possibly added a pub in lock stock and two smoking barrels. More

5 Wild Bill?
Can't remember the name of the pub in this but the fight at the end was fantastic! More
