I was only talking about The Lamb and the Cheshire Cheese with my 92 year old Dad on Sunday. He can remember when they were a butchers shop and a grocers.

Yes Bill that's correct.. I have heard this before. There is a picture of The Cheshire Cheese on the Blog as well... Give your dad our regards... we have a chap in Australia who is in his 90s that looks in.
