The pub re-opened it's doors in November 1980, it's manager was Hugh Fowler, and the owner was Courage brewery. It was separated then into three areas with the Main Bar called the Crown & Anchor, the Public Bar "mainly printers from the telegraph" was called Aunties Bar, and the restaurant / cocktail bar was named Spatz, I spent two years there as a cellar man, and it was Courage's busiest pub at the time with up to 10 bar staff working the lunchtime shift for the 2 bars. *
