This is Chicken Cottage fast food takeout. First appeared in Thomsons Directory 2010 but I recall it being fairly new in 2006

1960s - 1990s

Kelly's Directory 1960 to 1976 No 107 Crystal Snack Bar (Mrs G Harrison), also in Thomsons Directory 1988, and in 1995 as the Crystal Fish Bar. This was a classic fish and chip shop (apparently known as "Dirty Gertie's"[1]). Particularly popular for its Streetfighter 2 arcade machine. Queues of folks would build up to challenge each other with a winner stays on policy! There is a sweet recollection of trips to Crystal to play streetfighter in this blog.
