More on ‘Jack the Blaster’ and Marsden Grotto

According to my borrowed copy of The Lefties Guide to Britain ed. Peter Clark (Politico’s, 2005), p. 301, the grotto was also used ‘in the 1950s by a group of Leftie writers, artists and politicians.’ In the true, teetotal, puritanical tradition of the British left, the guide goes on to say:

‘Nowadays it is a bistro, but tea for two may be enjoyed for £2’.
