Series 1, Episode 4 - Mystery Shopper

Rom discovers there's a brewery mystery shopper on the prowl. To make matters even worse, Natasha needs Romesh's help as she wants to impress her colleagues at a company meal.

Further details

Natasha has borrowed a dog for a couple of days so the family can experience having a pet, which leads to Julie making friends with a handsome dog owner.

Meanwhile, Rom discovers there's a brewery mystery shopper on the prowl so he springs into action, keen to maintain his dad's stance - to only sell supermarket beer because it is cheaper - at the risk of losing the pub, because he's confident he can spot the mystery shopper.

To make matters even worse, Natasha needs Romesh's help as she wants to impress her colleagues at a company meal. Romesh agrees to attend but only if he doesn't have to sit next to Nat's crazy colleague he can't stand - oh, too late.
