The Most Dangerous Pub Crawl In Cinema | The Mother Black Cap
The Mother Black Cap

Film: Withnail & I (1987)

Location: Tavistock Crescent, London
Opening hours: Noon until 11pm
Clientele: An angry Irishman with a dislike for perfume and a reputation for unprovoked violence. Some unphased regulars
Entertainment: Visitors can enjoy their drinks in silence or bugger off
Price of a round: Somehow two large gins and two pints of cider come in at under a tenner... then again, it was 1969

The Mother Black Cap isn’t the place for you if you have a nervous disposition, smell overly fragrant or have a heart condition. If you’re on a budget however, there aren’t many places that can top it. It's a shame, then, that Withnail (Richard E. Grant ) and I (Paul McGann) are involved in a mix-up with an intimidating Irish local with bat-like hearing, which results in the displeased punter expressing his anger and the twosome beating a tactical retreat. Ah well - we know a tea shop which will give you a warm welcome, don't you worry...

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

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