Wave goodbye to the purple pig

8 Apr

The oddly named Purple Pig restaurant on Trinity Square went  belly up last October when the company that owned it put itself into liquidation. A nearby planning sign indicates that it is to reopen as a pub and further research tells me that the pub will be called “The Head of Steam” (*sigh* Pubs used to have such quaint names as the King’s Head, the Red Lion or even the Drunken Duck; now all pubs in a chain have the same name). The new owners are Cameron’s Brewery from my old home town, Hartlepool, so it’s bound to be a great place. I just hope access is restored to these premises as, at the moment, it’s just a bit tricky ….

    A poor choice for a new name.
