The Nag's Head is the local boozer for the Trotter family and the pub that has featured in the serial itself and the spin-off Green Green Grass and prequel Rock And Chips. When the serial began in 1981 the governor was unseen and was never identified but Mike Fisher took over in 1983, and was a regular character, and Sid from the cafe took over in 2001 when Mike was sent to prison for getting involved in the Trotters dodgy money making schemes. Derek "Del Boy" Trotter and Rodney Trotter are 2 regular customers. The pub has a reputation for serving watered down beer, as Trigger, a local customer is quick to point out. The pub is somehwere near the Nyrere Estate in Peckham in South London. Trigger's flat is inbetween Del's flat on the Nyrere Estate, and the Nags Head. You even have to walk past the pub from Del's place to get to Trigger's place.
1960 - 1981
Only Fools & Horses (1981 - 2003)In 1981, The Nags Head was run by a governor who was never seen in the series and whose name was never revealed. In 1983, Mike Fisher had took over as landlord. The main pub originally had 2 entrances and exit
doors either side of the main optics and bar area. By 1988, as first seen in Dates, the doorway to the right of the main bar had gone and been replaced with a wall and additional seating area.
In 1996, Mike's bothersome regular customer Del became a millionaire and left the area to move to the countryside. Del often tried to con Mike into buying the junk he sold. Now that Del had left Peckham, Mike could finally get some peace and quiet.
Mike kept in touch with Del and invested his savings into Del's dodgy South American stock market which would eventually crash. In 2001, when The Nags Head landlord Mike Fisher was sent to prison for fraud, he asked [] to run the pub for him until he's released. Sid took over as the pub landlord and adopted a much tidier and cleaner image than he ever did when he ran the cafe. At 76 years old he still was quite fit and able enough to run a pub full time.
In 2005, The Nag's Head a cameo in the The Green Green Grass, where it's shown that Sid was still running it. Boycie rings up The Nag's Head to offer Rocky the "Gay" Bull to Trigger as a joke, but even Trigger isn't stupid enough to fall for that.
Places of Interest
The bar (along with the toilets) takes up the entire downstairs area. There are several tables in this area and two entrances, one either side of the bar itself. As shown in a few episodes, there is a small television in the bar.
In "Hole in One" Albert falls down the cellar's stairs. All of the drink is stored down here. It's possible that some food is kept down here too.
The Poker Room
This is where Elsie Partridge holds her seance in "Sickness and Wealth". It's only a small room and has one round table. Sometimes the 5 guys come here to play Poker. This was the room that Trigger spent an hour in whislt waiting for everyone to arrive in "The Class of '62", mistaking it for the function room.
The Function Room
The function room is presumably the room featured in "The Class of '62", where the school reunion is held. There is a small bar area in the corner of the room.this is made for many local reunions taken place
The Dance Hall
The dance hall is mentioned in and seen in "Little Problems". Trigger stood in the dance hall when the lights were out, thinking that everyone was going to jump out and surprise someone.
The Male Toilets
The male toilets are featured in "Happy Returns". Del Boy rushes in, thinking that he had a daughter with June. He tells Trigger that he is not alright and Trigger (not understanding) knocks on the toilet door and tells the man inside to hurry up, as they had an "emergency" outside. Then, suddenly, Del Boy rushes out, realising that Rodney is with the girl who he believes to be his daughter. The toilets are presumably located to the left of the bar.
The Beer Garden
Rodney and Cassandra are seen drinking here in "Miami Twice".
'Burger Van, The Café, Nags Head Pub
- It's mentioned in "The Class of '62" that Trigger has been going to the pub since he was 16. It's therefore assumed that all the other regulars have been going to the pub since they were 16 as well.
