I've just had a quick glance through that website and it's a spectacular treasure trove of information. It'll keep me occupied for a long time.

If you have anything to add, or you know someone who may have, please pass on.

An article in the Nottingham Post from 2019, claimed that the restaurant on Forman Street became Punchinello in 1965. However there is a picture of the premises when it was the Empire Cafe and it became the Soup Kitchen (there is another picture of that) in 1975 or 1976. So when did it really become Punchinello?

Was that the cafe we used to cal "the one-up cafe"?  On ordering pie, peas and chips, the bloke serving would shout "one up" to the women in the kitchen.  The place would get packed out and I remember a chap shaking a sauce bottle and the top came off!  I was that busy laughing at my mate's face getting plastered I didn't realise I'd caught most of it up my back!
