The Rothschilds havnt disappeared. They work in the city of London. I worked at Nm Rothschilds and saw them all at some stage. Which is more than can be said for many heads of publiic companies in and around the world.
In a high street that doesnt have too much variety these days a book shop is always welcome. After browsing on a rainy Saturday afternoon I decided to buy "Stockwins Maritime Miscellany" for a quiet read and addition to my boat library this summer. Always nice to know there is a dedicated bookshop on the high street.
Oh..nearly missed this one. Been going here on and off for 22 years with family and london friends. Was always good for food although sundays if you didnt arrive between 11.50 & 12.30 .you would miss lunch or have a long wait. Now its been done up my wife and uncle went on a week day. sadly I have been informed never to go there.. Service was a disaster. But imagine still a good place to have a pint.. Don't always have to eat when going to the pub.
