“The Indian Restaurant in the narrow part of Upper High Street was, I think, called "The Passage to India" -cruelly referred to as "The Back Passage" by a friend of mine!”

“Already mentioned the Egg and Griddle below... but I thought it was Akers the Bakers, but you could be right, it may have been Ackermans. I also mentioned the fantastic family service at Al Mottorane's but could not recall the name so thanks for that...”

“This thread is stirring too many dormant grey cells. In the 1970s a fairly decent restaurant opened in Bligh's Hotel when it became part of the Toby chain - it was possible the first mid-market restaurant in the middle of town. Later it became a carvery. And anyone recall the Egg and Griddle, part of Ackerman's Bakery in the High Street?”

“Remember, too, the Maple Leaf - an odd name for a fish restaurant - that came and went in Well Court, and the Mumtaz on Tubs Hill, which in the 1960s was probably the only Indian restaurant in town. Tortellini had a knack of getting itself in the Chronicle week after week by dint of employing waiters who put flirting before service. The food was actually very poor, so no surprise it didn't last, in spite of all the groin-thrusting and "bella ragazza" patter. Also Settimo Tondina and his family deserve a name check for the team that made Al Mottarone so popular.”

“...and the name of Paul Chan's place at the Moon Palace I am reliably informed was called Gracelands.”
