High Street cuisine culture of 1950s
BRANDS come and go. The current recession has seen many famous names disappear.
Wimpy restaurants had a high profile in Torquay for many years, firstly in the row of buildings beside the Palm Court Hotel at Torre Abbey and, more recently, at 35 Fleet Street. The sit-down restaurants became part of UK cuisine culture in the 1950s. By 1970 there were 1,000 eateries in 23 countries doing brisk business. The brand has been sold on many times and restructured to cut costs.
For those nostalgic for the Wimpy experience there is still one trading in Newton Abbot.
