Aspull Spice
 Aspull Spice   by Ron Dawber  (Canon EOS D60)
Was the Queens Head, now refurbished and made into an Indian restaurant.

Comment by Mick on 2nd July 2013 at 00:03
They should have called it Spiced Aspull.

Get ready for the stink of stale curry smells first thing in a morning Ron.

Gathurst stinks rotten since they turned the Navvie into a Indian.


Comment by Ken R on 2nd July 2013 at 00:05
Thanks Ron, I went to the Methodist school, just to the right of this pic. Our school meals were made at the Queens Head, we didn't get any Indian tho.

Love the blue and white.....looks very tidy....he can come and sweep my leaves out the back when he has finished there....nice pic Ron.....cheers!!!

A lot of pubs have been transformed into restaurants in the last few years. It baffles me a bit, how can restaurants afford to stay in business when pubs can't?


Comment by David Barker on 2nd July 2013 at 12:18
Good clear photo Ron ,looks nice and tidy ,suprizing what a lick of paint and a few blue canopys can do .Would'nt expect it to do much, the Red Lion Haigh was a fine example that was a Indian and that died a death and is still boarded up ,well you never know ?.


Comment by Harry C. on 2nd July 2013 at 13:57
The one up Haigh Road ( used to be Red Lion )didn't last very long.


Comment by John H on 2nd July 2013 at 16:51
Nice pic Ron, It will be interesting to see if it works out for them. I do agree with David Barker though. I saw a for sale sign on the baiging [curry house] was a pub on Liverpool road Hindley. Still a nice pic though Ron

Garlic, salad cream, pickalily, spicy stuff, curry...no wonder were fat and out of shape. Horrible rubbish.


Comment by alan lad on 2nd July 2013 at 21:32
Give it six month. good photo.


Comment by Skeets on 2nd July 2013 at 23:34
To A W. It's called profit. It's income from sales minus costs and overheads. If there's enough left over you stay in business, if not ..... well you close.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 3rd July 2013 at 02:40
Garry if you are so worried about your health as you said we not people.....get yourself a bike and get fit.....you can indulge in Indian food as it is really healthy.....it's the other stuff what ain't .....cheers!!!


Comment by Shaf Nowab (Aspull Spice) on 3rd July 2013 at 09:53
This place will last the plan is to have it open for a long time. When I was speaking to some of the locals they were saying this is something Aspull has needed for a long time. The Buisness owners have a lot of experience in industry and they know how to keep a buisness afloat. We look forward to working with the local community or organise charity events etc.


Comment by Garry on 3rd July 2013 at 14:28
Too many of these spicy places about. Old English traditional food for me, food you can trust.


Comment by Mavis on 3rd July 2013 at 15:31
My daughter phoned for a take away when it first opened and she said they were really rude on the phone, and the price for take out is same as if you were sitting in. Not good for business they have lost a couple of would be customers before they start. They are staying with India Lounge.


Comment by Carol Wilson on 4th July 2013 at 13:11
I'm in Garry's camp on this one.


Comment by joe graney on 22nd July 2013 at 18:42
