The Sugar Bowl was a posh country club with an outdoor swimming pool, not as large as the Galleon. It Later became Il Pirata an Italian Restaurant.
The Sugar Bowl was always an open air pool and never an indoor one. We considered this pool 'posh' probably as it was more expensive than The Galleon, but it was nice to swim there as a treat. I now live in Somerset with family in Banstead but I understand the Galleon is no longer in existence but what about the Surrey Yeoman? That was my watering hole when it was run by Oscar Collier and his son Richard (Dick).
Wasn't this an indoor swimming pool?
