Inn for Trouble is a 1960 British comedy film - a movie spin-off of the 1950s sitcom The Larkins - starring Peggy Mount, David Kossoff and Leslie Phillips; the title makes silent allusion to the real Trouble House Inn in Gloucestershire near Tetbury.

The Larkin family take over a run-down country public house, "The Earl of Osbourne", but their efforts to rejuvenate business are impeded by the long-standing tradition of free beer being distributed by the local Earl. The film is notable for the final credited appearance of Graham Moffatt in the role of Jumbo. He is best remembered as Albert, the fat boy in Gainsborough Studios famous Will Hay films of the late thirties. He left acting to become a pub landlord, dying of a heart attack in 1965 at the age of 45. (His final uncredited appearance was in "80,000 Suspects" in 1963.)
