"The Bloody Lamb" Pub from "An American Werewolf in London"

Post by Todd J. Feldm » Tue, 09 Aug 1994 05:04:01


I was wondering if anyone knew the real location of the pub (in the English
North Yorkshire Moors I believe) that was used in the opening of
"An American Werewolf in London".  In the film it was called "The ***y
Lamb".  I vaguely remember having a conversation with a British friend
about this and him saying "Oh yeah, it's in ......".

HELP!!

Thanks!

Todd

        Um...that's The SLAUGHTERED Lamb, actually. I know there's one in
NYC 'cause I've seen the t-shirts, but where the one in England is is
anyone's guess. Post on alt.gothic and they might know.

The one in NYC is at 182 West 4th Street, Greenwich Village.
It serves Newcastle Brown, Fullers Ales and it's own brews.... arrrr!

I've been in pubs in the UK similar to the one in the aforementioned
movie, where an eerie hush descends as all heads turn towards the entering
unwelcome stranger......   have you tried Uxbridge, Middx.?

Keep to the roads lads!

It was called "The Slaughtered Lamb", but I'm clueless as to where
the village actually is. I can, however, refer you to several pubs
where you'll get the same response from the locals when you walk in
(ie: sudden silence, bloke misses the dart board, "You made me miss
the board. I've never missed that board...").

Whilst the script said the moors were in North Yorkshire, I believe that the
filming was actually done in North Wales. Still don't know the name of the pub
though.

 Wrong, south wales, the pub is in a village in the Brecon region (name
 unknown).. Apparently the Brecon hill looks more like what the americans
 think Yorkshire looks like..

  I'm almost 100% sure that the 'moors' were filmed around Hay Bluff and
the Gospel Pass in the Black Mountains, which are part of the Brecon
Beacons National Park.  I've no real evidence though, except that I think
I recognised the scenery!  Unfortunately, it doesn't follow that they
also did the pub scenes there...

There is also a Slaughtered Lamb in the Village (New York City)!

Aha! You could have a point there! You could even have a pint there! :-) I only
just noticed your signature. I hasten to add that I intended no offence to the
townsfolk of Uxbridge in this or previous postings.

BTW I think this was one of the classic movie scenes of all time. Does anyone
remember the name of the actor who played the landlord who told the joke
about the Alamo? Also played Selwyn Froggitt in the TV series.

I would imagine the real answer as to why this location was chosen has
more to do with costs and logistics than any attempt to cater to some
sort of supposed American stereotypes about Yorkshire.  I doubt they
have any.  Most of them wouldn't have the least idea one way or the other.
Just as the average Brit probably has little idea of what Missouri or
Wisconsin are like.

Uxbridge?? Uxbridge is an urban area, hardly the same thing atmosphere
as an isolated country pub. The pubs I've been to in Uxbridge are pretty
normal.

You ought to a pub in mid-Wales to get a *really* good reaction
on entrance. Everyone falls silent, stares at you, and resumes their
conversations, only in Welsh this time. And you could have sworn they
were talking English when you came in...

Brian Glover, perhaps? He also played God in a mummers play and has been
in 'Leon The Pig Farmer' and 'Bottom' to name but three.
