Hi, I am seeking some knowledge.

Can anyone tell me the name of an old what used to be a Robinsons' pub at the top of Hillgate? It is now a curry house (formerly Mango Lounge)

Thanks in advance for the knowledge

I think it was the Rams Head but I dont think it was a Robbies house, possibly Wilsons.

That place used to change hands every five mins before the restaurant world brought some stability.

At one point I thought it was a police station but apparently it was due to the number of stabbings/drugs raids etc that went on there - that may have been in the Cotton's day (many versions on the name Cotton's).

Its been a Pub, nighclub, wine bar and a lapdancing bar

After the pub I think it was a club called 'High Society' Probably in mid 80's.
