The Bongo Espresso Bar in Station Road with the proprietor, Eric Bitten, in front. Before it became a throbbing coffee bar it was a cafe run by Basil Gates and had a very popular snooker table at the rear. The shop frontage has been absorbed into the modern Salvation Army building. Which brewer's 'bottled ale and stout' was advertised on the adjoining wall?
