Poole's


Poole's
Looks like Poole's Cafe has been given another new lease of life.

Sorry doesn't appeal to me.
I'm not into all this food stuff, love traditional English breakfast fry ups with toast and nice pot of tea.

Might have another lease of life but not for pool's pies, sadly.

Years ago Poole's pies were good but when Whelan got his finger into the proverbial pie they went down hill fast. I am not into foreign foods but at least the shop is in use. Better than a rotting shell.

Poole’s made the best vanilla slices ever.

If there's a smoking ban in public places how can they run a Shisha bar ?

Looks awful

Not sure this is progress.

Poet, there's a rooftop terrace.

I never like to see the signage over these shops/restaurants… ( I hope that’s not being ‘racist’!). At least it’s being used …but I prefer quaint English tea shops….

It used to look lovely some years ago,a lot more classier than this.

Boris spoke of levelling up , Andy Burnham a month ago spoke about making the north the powerhouse it once was . I honestly admit I am absolutely clueless as to where my beloved Wigan is going .
I love Wigan so much , and like my mother who binned my treasured levy’s , only for me to dig them out again, I will never give up on it , no matter how many patches , like my levy’s hold it together . Born and bred , means soul!

Do you mean Levi's jeans?

Hey up ! Mick's giving spelling lessons .

Comment by: Poet on 11th May 2023 at 07:53

That's bound to be 'racist' Veronica . 'Misogynistic ' too I'll bet . Probably 'homophobic' , as they all tend to go together . And no doubt 'institutionally' so as well .

Also my thanks to Dave for his kind reply .

Mark, my feelings exactly.

I used to work there many years ago. It was a great place to work. Went downhill after Whealan took over.
