When my grandfather came down from Liverpool to visit me and my parents in '59, we went for a meal at the Dover Stage. It was one of the most delicious, satisfying meals I've ever had. Can still remember the sense of the taste now, even though I can't remember what the meal consisted of!
I can look back to sunny days and my uncle helping us to collect fools gold at St Margaret at Cliff. Auntie Alice would pack up a picnic and we would take a ride in the car (I can't remember what type) and we would sit down on the beach, I think it was cobbles, I don't remember any sand. We would spend a couple of weeks ...Read full memory
I remember this as being the place to go when we were out for the evening. We used to drink vodka and lime and think we were really cool. It used to get packed out and was really modern and trendy in it's day.
