The refreshment houses was on the corner of Joiner St. and Nursery St. I went there for meals for our family.

Leslie Cass is right and the lady who worked in there lived as caretaker for Aizlewoods flour mill.

The refreshment houses was on the corner of Joiner St. and Nursery St. I went there for meals for our family. Just been to my sisters and she reminded me that we went to my nephews  wedding reception in the Grosvenor. She said it had accommodation upstairs and the reception and bar downstairs.

The forty foot is still open Jane, or it was before the pandemic.

Went past the forty foot today.  It doesn't look closed down, just closed.  There were Christmas decorations in the window.

The missing name is the Bull and Oak. Where was the White Lion? I only remember the New White Lion. There was the Lion just around the corner on Nursery St where the Riverside Court is now but that was before my boozing days.

Yes. That's it, The bull and oak.

With regards to the the White Lion/New White Lion and the locations. I am not certain which was which but one of them was on the corner of the Wicker and Nursery Street as you say and the other one became Bennetts  Fishing tackle shop. The frontage of the old shop is still there to plainly see. You had to access the shop via Stanley Street. The one on the corner had a snooker table in there. I played there a couple of times. If I remember rightly the floor sloped and as the table obviously had to be level it was quite confusing when you had to take a shot from the deep end as it seemed.
