Ock Street – Fish and Chip shop closes

Fish and Chip shop closes
Steve sent me this picture with the question ‘Is Reeves no More?’ The Reeves family ran this fish and chip shop in Ock Street up to about the 1980s. Over the road was Ruddocks – now Pizza Hut.

This business has been Salami’s Fish Bar since the 1990s. There are older pictures of Fish and Chip shops in Ock Street on Facebook – Spotted Abingdon.

Two new bars

Two new bars
Two new bars are coming to the High Street, Abingdon, and both now have coloured vinyl displays on the windows. The Old Chemist’s green vinyl advertises books, cocktails, and gin, and food. It was Smiths the Chemist, and contains the old Abingdon library reading room.
Two new bars
Then directly over the road, where Stan James the bookmakers was, the blue vinyl says Mercer Bar is coming soon. The building is already looking much smarter without the big pigeon nets covering the top floor.

The two new bars join The Narrows, and The Grapes on the High Street.
