Yes I remember the pinball machine the afficianados of which I never was one could nudge the machine with their hips and never "tilt" it. Also on the side wall was an old Jukebox. 1 play 6p 3 plays 1s (i think). It along with the Conc (Concadora) and the Old Mecca were my home from home through the early/mid sixties (trying to) dance to the bands downstairs, at the BG, in what if we could travel back and see it would have been the worlds tiniest cellar.
