With all NatWest branding now removed the old lettering has been revealed. I’ll pop up and get a photo to post later as I guess it won’t be around for long. Cant remember now for sure but I think it’s National Provincial Bank of England! Old age grrrrrrrrr.
Hands up time! That the reason why myself and a business partner tried to buy the pub and lost out at auction. If we could have got it at the price we set we knew a CPO would come in eventually and provide a much better return than any bank account would have!
Chatting to a few Jewellers in the pub tonight and I was bemoaning the lack of a good Chinese in the JQ. A couple then began to talk about the Crystal from many years ago which, apparently was where the Tesco Express now sits near the clock.
Any info, dates, pictures or memories more than...
Mintola 1955 renamed Mint Munchies in the 1990's, then After Eight Bitesize in 2006
Ironically Mintola is an older brand than After Eight, and was launched by a different company (Mackintosh's) but now finds itself enjoying the patronage of the After eight name.
