    Tan Hill Inn for 4.
    Abbey for 8.

    Without thinking too much about the others.

    Oh just worked 9 out. I wish they would bring it back.
    Just got 6 now. The rockumentary threw me slightly from the obvious answer.
    Also 7 after racking my brain as to the members of my sisters favourite band when growing up and which one played the keyboard.

    I have answers for 1,3,4,5,6,7,8,10 but I suspect I'm wrong on 3 (not the obvious answer), 5 may be a trick question, and 10. I know the band but it's a funny name for an estate agent (unlike Bastard Thieves Bairstow Eves).
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    Indeed. Not unlike Benham & Reeves Thieves.
