Do you remember the Cat & Cucumber?

Royal Pavilion and Museums Brighton & Hove

I wish I knew the significance of ‘The Cat & Cucumber‘ name.

Unfortunately, I do not have any idea of the date either – can you help me out?

What I do know is that it was in Queens Road.

Do you remember it? If you do please post a comment below.

  • The Cat & Cucumber was still there at 120 Queens Rd in the final Kellys in 1974 which looks about the date of this image.

  • My parents owned this cafe from 1977 – 1979. It was located on the corner of Queens Road and Church Street. It used to be a pub called the Windsor Castle. I think the photo is earlier than 1977, I’m guessing early 1970s.

  • I thought the Windsor Castle used to be on the corner of Windsor Street and Church Street, where the Earth and Stars now stands.

  • I think the pub you’re referring to Alan was just called the Windsor, whereas the Cat & Cucumber was formerly the Windsor Castle. Two different pubs with similar names just a stone’s throw apart.

  • My Dad, Toni Martelli knew the owners of the Cat and Cucumber Cafe. The owner used to work at my dad’s parents restaurant called the Petit Savoyard in Soho. I remember going there as a child. The owners wife was called Soulange. Angie.
