Henry Crabbe (Richard Griffiths) is a mild-mannered police officer who has more of a passion for cooking than he does police work. His dream is to retire from the police force and open his own restaurant but he is not yet eligible for retirement. When Henry is shot in the line of duty his dream now becomes much more possible as he can now take an early retirement. The only thing standing in his way is his boss who is scared to let Henry go as he worries that he will be investigated as a result of the shooting. In a bid to keep Henry on he refuses to give him his full retirement pension unless Henry carries out his dirty work for him, so Henry must now balance his new life as a chef at his dream restaurant and dealing with his boss’ dodgy dealings.
