Much to his annoyance Romesh is left running the local pub after his mischievous father left it to him in his will. He has never wanted to be a landlord, but his mum feels it is the only way to keep his dad's legacy alive, and his wife and kids are having a ball there.

Starring Sian Gibson as his wife, Natasha, and Nick Helm as best mate Lemon, this semi-autobiographical sitcom follows Romesh's misadventures as he tries to offload the pub he doesn't want, while his family use any amount of emotional blackmail to keep him at the heart of the place.
