Storyline

After twenty-five years working at Belcher's Brewery, Alf Larkin is given a pub to manage. But the Earl Osbourne is in trouble, mostly because the Earl himself has by tradition to give his own very quaffable beer away free once a quarter. The Larkins come up with various tricks to gain custom, not realising a proposed new road means the place could soon become a goldmine anyway. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Goofs

Early in the film Eddie arrives home with his Scout Troop and his mother comes out of the house and hurries Eddie indoors. He goes in the front door on the right hand side of the property, with downstairs windows to the left. However, from the interior scenes, the front rooms and door have appeared to change positions.

Mr & Mrs Larkins and family set out to revive an underused pub for Belchers Brewery with hilarious results.
20 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'Inn For Trouble' is a classic British comedy, with some great cast members, a good plot and loads of laughs, which score full pints with this viewer. Like many films from this period, half the pleasure lies in viewing a vanished world that never existed. Alan Wheatley reprises his role as the Sheriff of Nottingham (1950's TV Adventures of Robin Hood series) but in a suit; Leslie Phillips is the suave brewery owner; Charles Hawtrey is as mad as ever and there are bit parts from such greats as Irene Handl, Esme Cannon and Stanley Unwin. Immortals all! Anyone who doesn't like this film obviously has no sense of humour and has probably only watched it because it was part of a media studies course.
