QUEEN VIC VOTED THE BEST PUB ON TELLY.
SOAP fans have voted the Queen Vic the Best TV Boozer of All Time, with Alfie Moon scooping the title of Greatest TV Barman.
Coronation Street blonde Bet Lynch was voted Best Barmaid in the survey of 2,000 pub goers by Blackthorn Cider.
Only Fools and Horses star Del Boy Trotter was named as the TV pub regular most people would like to see in their local - and Coronation Street troublemaker Les Battersby was the least desirable.
A spokesman for Blackthorn said: "EastEnders gets slated for being depressing, but it seems we would all prefer to join the Walford crowd for a drink."
The Queen Vic was voted Best Boozer ahead of the Rovers Return, with the Nags Head in the classic Only Fools And Horses third, Cheers Bar in US sitcom Cheers fourth and Emmerdale's Woolpack fifth.
Alfie Moon, played by former game show host Shane Ritchie, beat off EastEnders' notorious Dirty Den to land the title of Greatest TV Barman.
Mike from Only Fools and Horses was third, Sam Malone of Cheers was fourth and Coro- nation Street's Jack Duckworth was fifth.
