Where is the Friday Night Dinner house?

Every episode of the comedy is set inside the ‘family home’, which is a property based in Mill Hill, north London.

The show is written by Robert Popper – who also co-created BBC mockumentary Look Around You – and tells the story of brothers Adam and Jonny, who go to their parents house for dinner once a week for the Jewish sabbath.

The sitcom has long been subject to rumours of an American remake.

Deadline Hollywood announced in September 2011 that Greg Daniels, the brains behind adapting The Office for American television, would spearhead an American remake of the series for the broadcast network NBC.

The remake was picked up for a pilot – and even featured Academy Award winner Allison Janney – but not for a series.

Is Friday Night Dinner filmed in a real house?

The Friday Night Dinner house is a real property in London.

Tamsin Greig, who plays mum Jackie, has previously spoke about how difficult it is to shoot the sitcom.

She reportedly said: “It’s not an easy show to film, we are in a house and it feels like a Jewish Big Brother.”

How much is the Friday Night Dinner house worth?

According to Global Film Locations, the house was worth £1.5million in 2018.

Tamsin has revealed how conscious she was about making a mess in the house, with it being someone’s family home.

She reportedly said: “With the food I worry about the waste but I find it funny. I had to throw a lot of roast potatoes at Simon Bird.”

Who lives in the house?

Though many fans will know where the Channel 4 show’s house is, who lives there outside of filming hours remains unknown.

However, in the show, the house is occupied by the Goodman family.

The Goodmans are made up of Jackie, father Martin – played by Paul Ritter – and sons Adam and Jonny, played by Simon Bird and Tom Rosenthal respectively.

The cast are in mourning following the passing of Paul aged 54 in April.

Many cast members paid tribute to the late star – including Tom, who tweeted: “Incredibly sad and thoughts are with Polly, Frank and Noah.”
