A cosy nest for fans of gentle British comedy (punnery, word play, spoonerisms, self deprecation and silly noises).
Do some pretend porridge and while away the hours with like-minded souls, lamenting the passing of comedy giants Benny, Spike, and now Ronnie Barker.
And now, it's 'goodnight'
I often think what a sad loss to british comedy was the early death of Richard Beckinsale
