    That is very sad, his wife used to baby sit me frequently when I was a toddler and my grandad left me in there whilst he went to the bookies. Such a lovely family from my memory. So sad when someone who has waited to retire and dies so soon after.

    RIP Andreas

    Many years ago I was in there one lunchtime and when my food arrived the ash from the fag he was also holding dropped on to the side of my plate and just casually wiped it off with his apron

    A real charactor

    Ha ha. I was always dubious about the hygene levels in there i must be honest. But for some reason eating your dinner on a table full of someone elses spilt peas and carrots didnt seem to matter back then.

    Never.
    Even the major refurb was just the outside sign painted, wnet in when it reopened and the tables were still dirty.

    many a time I hit the Ritz after a skinful. It was a decent place in the 70's. Rest in Peace Andreas
    I must away now, I can no longer tarry
    This morning's tempest I have to cross
    I must be guided without a stumble
    Into the arms I love the most

    My aunt lives in W12 and ate in there all the time, she and her family all thought they were posh - no joke, anyway about 30 years ago she had her birthday meal there,
    I went there with my mum & dad and my girlfriend (now the wife) I enjoyed it to be far but my girlfriend thought it was the worst place she'd ever ate in, might of had something to do with the coakcrouch she saw in the toilet, she isn't from suburbia either - willesden RIp
