In the 70's Tom and Judith Brady approach a local brewery to apply for a tenancy of one of their public houses. It is a first tenancy, so Tom expects to be offered a small, basic inn. It is basic, very basic! Situated in a small village on the east coast. Despite Judith's concern at this venture Tom is determined to turn it into a popular watering hole for the locals. Their first year is a rollercoaster and Judith relates all their struggles with a quirky sense of humour as they take on this huge task of literally remaking their new home The Dog and Duck, as she introduces you to some of the locals. You may recognise the types, both good and bad. You know them and have met them before, they are part and parcel of most customers of many public houses. This couple, with their two children, face many challenges, learning every day, but not all is so serious, there are many humorous situations that help them cling to the vision of what their inn could become. Situations guaranteed to make you smile.
