That'a a bit depressing fellas.  You have mentioned some nice places.  I had lunch sometimes in the Bodega ;)
I'm patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it ...

The last time i was in the Bodega (quite a few years ago) i went in for a pint with my brother-in-law we sat up at the bar, but we left quickly because of the smell from the bogs which was quite strong and would not have added to the enjoyment of our pints.

get aff ma fut.

There used to be a pub in the entry that runs from Castle Lane between the back doors of BHS and Mothercare through to High Street. It was in the corner at the back door of BHS and was open during the late 70s early 80s, I'm not sure when it closed down but I think it is part of BHS now.

The Capstan in Ann Street, The Royal Bar, Ann St.
It is always a great source of amusement to be quoted by a fool, even more so if quoted by a disalusioned "stickie"
