Kent brewer Shepherd Neame has again teamed up with comedy duo Armstrong and Miller as they bring back their famous street-talking RAF pilot characters.
It’s toodle-pip to cor blimey as modern slang becomes totes amazballs LOL!
The comedians visited the Horse and Groom in Belgravia – the UK’s poshest pub, in the shadow of Buckingham Palace – which has gone ‘street’ for a month with signs and chalkboards translated to modern slang, emphasising how Spitfire beer marries traditions and modernity.
