The photo spells out the name of the film fairly literally.

Alan may have an edge in this one, although Bynx seems to have an encyclopedic knowledge of the area.

As noted, one of the commentaries referred to this movie as, "social realism."

Honey is a 2003 film with Jessica Alba. It doesnt fit your description but the picture sure does. Now if we were doing rock groups this would clearly be The Lovin Spoonful.

Bynx,

Boy Selvin, you are really reaching with this one. How obscure can you get?
A Taste of Honey from 1962. Unfortunately I dont have it in my library.

Starred Rita Tushingham, as I recall. As a trivial & marginally relevant coincidence, the Cheshire village of Tushingham is about 4 miles south of here It has a wonderful old pub.

A gigantic & friendly Great Dane dog lived there until it died. If I'd ever photographed it, it would have fitted many doggy movies, but you'll have to use your imagination. As you sat on a comfy chair eating & drinking, it would sit on its hind quarters and look you straight in the eye, about 4 feet off the floor. It kept the customers in order rather well.

Alan, I once road a bicycle from London to Bristol. It was a hot summer and I needed to make up for the sweat I was losing. I stopped at almost every pub on the way. I didnt find a town that didnt have a wonderful old pub.

Thanks for remembering me, Selvin, and yes, 'A Taste of Honey' was delightfully obvious to me. But few British folk these days are both inclined and old enough to recall the British 1960s 'kitchen sink' phase, let alone engage in transatlantic/transpacific photographic delights as well.

You have however, brought to my mind yet another fruitful film genre to work on.Thanks very much! Theone that springs to mind might test Bynx, but probably only for a few seconds.
