1965

Tony Qunta….I used to love the Fiesta!

John Alexander Wilde….June 5th 1971 John and Pam wedding reception in the coffee bar. Anyone still alive that remembers this?

Pete Fisher….spent so many hours here hanging out as a teenager…sitting outside on the pavement in the summer…

Stephen Fletcher….Good memories .spent most of my teenage years there.

Andy Qunta…. remember the tea came in a glass that sat in a kind of silver/metal glass holder with a handle.Tea bag still in it, & a long spoon. Good hamburgers too! Chicago – 25 or 6 to 4 – on the juke box, as well as many more great classics!

Gary Kinch……….And tomato ketchup that came in plastic tomatoes. Unscrew the green top, quickly turn the tomato upside down, place green top on the upturned bottom, then leave……….we were really rock and roll

Geoff Peckham….Yes, I would have been with you, Andy. Bridge Over Troubled Water was the soundtrack on the jukebox. Perhaps we discussed forming a band in the Fiesta?

Bernard Jeffery…Big part of my youth, great coffee, used to get a baguette and fill it with chips and loads of ketchup, so healthy. always good music on the jukebox.

Paul Sleet….who remembers Min riding into the fiesta on his bike?

Terry Huggins….I got barred from this place on a regular basis.

Andre Martin…..Does anybody remember the guy – I think his name was Joe, who used to be on the door, downstairs on the corridor up to the club on the top floor, he used to be on ” duty” Friday and Saturday nights till the early hours of the morning, I knew him also from the college where he was a student doing A levels – often wondered what happened to him – nice guy.
