The Bungalow Café was situated on the west side of Above Bar Street just south of The Junction. The photograph below does not really do justice to the café which, despite its name, was the largest restaurant in the town in the 1930s and featured live music. It also boasted uniformed page boys and wine waiters. Its motto was “Music and Food for Every Mood”. It was a very popular meeting place, being in a central position close to the shops, cinemas and theatres. It was destroyed during the Blitz.
