I think the front of this Hotel was a bar called the Longshore, it had entertainment on in the 1970's.

There was a shellfish stall at the very front of the hotel before the bar was extended. The guy's name who ran it was Joe. Maybe the same one??

My father was Frank Symonds His Father was Bertie Symonds my father took it over when he died .....My mother started the fish shop on Nelson road long before the stall on the sea front closed down, my father was not called Joe or his Father either it was just a name they used on both the fish shop and stall.
