According to the good people at IFBB (Independent Family Brewers of Britain) the person people would like to see most as a "fantasy landlord" is comedian Peter Kay. Bolton based Kay topped the YouGov poll in all UK regions scoring a creditable 34% of the 1943 sample. Stephen Fry was the somewhat unlikely second choice, with DJ Chris Moyles nabbing the bronze. Model Katie Price was also short-listed but only scored 4% of the votes. (No I haven't heard of her!)
Scott Waddington from the Independent Family Brewers of Britain said: “It seems that the nation likes a landlord who can make them laugh! And they’ve chosen wisely. A good landlord should have a great sense of humour, be sociable and fun and know how to make their pub the hub of the community."
It is a good bit of fun. So who'd be your fantasy landlord or landlady?
