Dave Berry - The Oedipus Wrecked

When George Orwell wrote ‘The Moon Under Water' he probably didn't imagine that the pub he so desired would go on to become the meeting place of two commercial digital indie radio titans. Well it has, because the shadowy figure that is approaching its doors looks suspiciously like commercial digital indie radio presenter Dave Berry.John, Dave and the lovely Robin hunker down around a table at The Moon Under Water to discuss Greenwich pubs and the body clock of a breakfast radio presenter (and how that plays a role in visiting alehouses). As with all guests we welcome into the tavern of the mind Dave will have to decide on the drinks that will populate his dream bar... and there's even a rare appearance from a mystical Northerner.Want to contact the Landlord?

Suzi Ruffell - The Principal

To quote Samuel Johnson: “There is nothing which has yet been contrived by man, by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern”. And whilst we agree with what Sam was saying, we think that listening to comedian and writer Suzi Ruffell create her dream pub will bring you even more happiness than the tavern he kept banging on about. As she's poured a pint by Landlord John Robins and pulls up a stool at the bar next to the ever-present Robin Allender, Suzi picks the 7 drinks that will populate her dream tap house and reminisces about pub memories past. What pictures will adorn the walls? What wildcard drink will be on offer? Will it be the sort of pub where singalongs are encouraged? All will be revealed in due course.Want to contact the Landlord?

Jodie Kidd - The Half Moon Under Water

It's been quite the week! Not only did beer gardens make a triumphant return into many of our lives, but The Moon Under Water opened its doors for the first time. It's a place where guests are invited to create their dream pub (so long as their choices fit the rigorous criteria set by Landlord John Robins).The next guest who will be swimming in pub desire is starting to approach the bar, and as they become ever clearer we can see that it's none other than Jodie Kidd!Jodie is the owner of her own pub The Half Moon in Kidford, so she's already had some experience with creating her dream watering hole. But brewery ties don't exist and logistical planning isn't needed when creating your ideal pub in the further realm, so her choices might just be a bit special. Want to contact the pub landlord?
