This was called the Pig and Whistle before being re-named the Fountain Bar.

It was very poplar and busy when it first opened. There were 2 entrances/ exits

and you had to walk downstairs.

I remember that there tended to be quite alot of fights in the Fountain bar (more than

other pubs), then it went a bit downhill and alot of dodgy characters used to go.

I tended not to go in after a while. Maybe it was my imagination but there seamt

to be an uneasy atmosphere in there as though a fight was about to go off anytime.

Does anyone know what year the pig & whistle shut? i suspect it was late 1980s as I seem to remember that there was a GT Sports (?) shop there for a few years in the late 80s/90s

It was also a Lasky's HiFi shop, where I bought a system from around 1983/4. Lasky's was bought by Comet in 1989
