  1. I remember the home made ice cream there - it was lovely!
  2. Great fish and chips to be had from The Fish Bar on Crown Island!
  3. Hi folks The building in which Jamie's Italian is situate used to be the offices of Warren and Allen, solicitors (long since defunct). The Paul Smith Building is listed, which I'm sure many round there are. It used to be the offices of Freeth, Cartwright & Sketchley (now Freeths on Mount Street). I believe that building was originally the town house of Lord and Lady Willoughby who owned Wollaton Hall.

  6. I was in the Mikado. Would love to see some of the photos. Can you post them?

  11. Who remembers 'Don't forget the Kiora, Arora'?
  12. Hey, thanks everyone for birthday wishes. Well, what do you do on a birthday that's damp and foggy? Open cards, receive nice gifts, get visitations from the family and play Guess Who? And Hungry Hippos (remember them?) then enjoy a lovely meal and a bottle of fizz. Now that's how to have a lovely birthday :-)
  13. I remember many happy hours sitting in El Toreador over a cup of espresso coffee (2/6d I think) with a crowd of friends. There was the Sargasso upstairs, and also a coffee bar downstairs. There were quite a few nice coffee bars in Nottingham, and we all had our favourites. The Bohemian was another favourite. Good coffee, good times
