Bad-tempered, wheelchair-bound Brian Potter runs a working mans club in Bolton called The Phoenix. The struggling club is staffed by an odd bunch, including licensee Jerry St Clair.
The club has had a troubled history, having been closed many times. Brian is now trying to bring it back to its former glory... but is often hampered by things really not going to plan.
The 2004 sitcom Max And Paddy's Road To Nowhere was a spin-off from this show.
