The pub was actually my local for about a year around 1983-4, but I've never been back since. Must make an effort to go.
    It's amazing what you can find out on this site - thanks!

    It has to be the Loughborough Organ Grinder for me which I suspect is unfortunately a repeat from two years ago. It was entirely Blue Monkey Heaven on my recent visit.
