Did Bacci have an upstairs room, maybe for snooker? I can vaguely remember looking out of the window at a juicy pear tree. We probably climbed the back wall and nicked those pears at a later date! :D

can't ever remember an upstairs just a few tables by the counter and a sixpenny fruit machine then at the back of the shop the machine where you had to get 3,4 or five numbers in a line and if you got 20 points Peter or Fred would give you 10 bob,happy days

I was only in Bacci's billiard hall (I'm sure it was known as that and not a snooker hall) a couple of times as I probably wasn't 'old' enough to be a regular. I do remember that the place had a certain cache for being where the 'faces' or the tough lads hung out and was always being warned by my old man to stay clear. Wasn't the billiard hall upstairs via a rickety staircase??? Didn't he have another cafe at the Station - on the corner just along from the level-crossing; we used to go in there to play the pin-ball machines.
