The Greasy Spoon in Portland...Home of the "Everything Burger"...i mean, who else would put a sodding pineapple on a burgher for a hungry pissed up matelot....Genius!!fishmiester said:What about the Greasy Spoon in Portland,
and the Messy Burger shop just outside Unicorn Gate (late 80's) when it was a shop and not a wagon
I take it thats meant to be 365 days a year Crusher , must be the excitement of approaching Guzz , hope yous all have a Ding Dong of an up channel night ,and bloody well welcome home to each and every one of yous :lol:sgtpepperband said:Aah, the Greasy Spoon! The owner was an avid Wolves fan who used to flash when Jack would distract him and try and rob the scarves/posters off the wall. Didn't he relocate to Guzz when FOST moved down there? There was also a mobile Chinese wagon that went round Portland dockyard (an ex-matelot and his chinky bird), who would always argue in the lingo about the food... I think they got shut down for hygiene reasons..!
I've lost count of the big eats shops in Pompey, but the best at the moment is Mr. Ts on the top of Portsdown Hill. I've spent many times in the car park in the Provost van, looking down over the harbour, at all hours of the day and night. Mind you don't try to buy a cup of tea and a burger with a Â£20 note and expect to get change back at 4 o'clock in the morning!!
Apparently it's owned by two ex-Royals and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 265 days a year... that's hard core!
