Where on Earth is Pommeroy's?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rumpole of the Bailey - The Complete Collection [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a wonderful collection of a series that has some brilliant English humour. Leo McKern is a fitting Horace Rumpole and, although it might appear a little dated in 2010, it makes me laugh. I would recommend this to anyone who likes John Mortimer's character. As Rumpole would say: "I defend, I do not prosecute." This complete series does not need defending...it needs watching.
The only negative comment: it's square in format and not the more normal 16:9 nowadays. I can live with that as I am sure most Rumpole fans will too.
I've also bought a Quiller-Couch version of The Oxford Book of English Verse...and that has not let me down either, although it is not so easy to find in good condition these days.
If you like Rumpole, this is a bargain DVD set. Where is Pommeroy's? Does anyone know?
I rest my case.

I believe Pomeroy's is the Rumpole term for El Vino, a wine bar in Fleet street.
