Sitcom set in a pub function room which sees pub regulars who've booked the room for different events joined by new characters each week.

In this pilot episode the function room is being used for a local community 'Meet The Police' event, with residents quizzing local police officers about crime in the area. But while the police plan simply to postcode valuables, the locals are only interested in one thing: who is the infamous Shit Egg Killer? And will they actually be able to call him that in the papers? Especially when he's not even killed anyone.
