George Orwell wrote an essay on the perfect pub. A fictitious pub called The Moon Under Water. With the help of the audience, James as seen on Ricky Gervais' Extras and Russell Howard's Good News, designs the perfect pub.

James grew up in a West Country pub, and has toured the world as a comedian, but now he has returned to his roots, pubs. 29 close per week and they need saving. Dowdeswell and his audience are just the people to do it.

It's the ultimate happy hour where you'll discover beer for dogs, why it was illegal to buy a round during the First World War and why girls taste better than boys.
