Re: "British Resturants"
The one i spoke of post 40, in Gooch St Balsall Heath was the British Restaurant and subsidised until it closed in 1962,you could take your free meals, dinner ticket there in the school holidays, it was very basic, clean very nice food,and most of the staff were neighbours, lovely place, looked very like the one Wendy posted, post 47.Chris,
I didn't know they were still around in the 70s.The last one I remember was Northfield c1951...
They were not around in the 1970s. I agree with Rowland (Post 39) Some of the restaurants might have been bought and run as private businesses but they were not subsidised British restaurants.
