Anyone eaten at The Cold Harbour? I havtnf or many years and i think they've been taken over since then.

Jesus that's a blast from the past, is that at the top of the Blunsdon Hill? As a kid we used to go there, I may be thinking of a totally different place but did it have a massive beer garden with swings and a crow's nest type climbing net to boot?

We are probably talking 25-30 years ago so I could be getting completely confused but I am pretty sure we used to go to the Cold Harbour (coke floats also ring a bell)

The Cold Harbour was a disappointing chain pub style thing last time I went. They also nearly cocked up our Mother's day booking at that time.

Perhaps not representative, or taken over again (about 5 years or so since we went)?

You may or may not have noticed, but the Hop is moving into The Pig, the old porn shop is being taken on by some Brizzle mob.

Most of us old enough to remember that shop refer to it as Richmondís grocery shop. 🤔

I'm sure I'm old enough, but don't remember Richmond's, think it was Peg's Pantry before the sex shop.

We used to use Mason's for some groceries which was in High Street.
