One remarkable comment came from Paul Clithero who told us how a visit to York's Wimpy Bar on Low Ousegate changed his life.

He wrote: "A visit to York's Wimpy Bar had a tremendous effect on my life. On a cold February, Saturday afternoon, a friend and myself were enjoying a "Wimpy" and milk shake. We were only there because YRLFC were playing away that day and we were at a loose end.

"After finishing the "Wimpy" we decided, just for a laugh, to cross Ouse bridge and go to the Army Recruiting office and get information on joining the army. Of course, with no intentions of joining up.

"Suffice to say, 22 years later we left the British army!! So, as you can see. I have deep memories of the Wimpy Bar effecting my life.

Here is a selection of some more readers' memories of Wimpy...

The Wimpy Bar, on Low Ousegate, had a tremendous effect on my life. On a cold February, Saturday afternoon, a friend and myself were enjoying a "Wimpy" and milk shake. We were only there because YRLFC were playing away that day and we were at a loose end. After finishing the "Wimpy" we decided, just for a laugh, to cross Ouse bridge and go to the Army Recruiting office and get information on joining the army. Of course, with no intentions of joining up. Suffice to say, 22 years later we left the British army!! So, as you can see. I have deep memories of the Wimpy Bar effecting my life.

I worked there at the same time as a lot of people in the photograph as a Saturday girl while I was at college. Brings back memories!

There was one near the Golden Fleece and one on Malton road before either of those two.

I used to work in the Ousegate one when I was 16. I'm now 73 they had a jukebox on the wall. Oh happy days.

I used to work in the Low Ousegate one, about 1975/76 along with Karen Howard. We were still at Danesmead and worked Saturdays 10am to 6pm. Really hard slog - you had table service and were responsible for every aspect aside from cooking hot food. Worth it for the laughs, the flirty customers and free cheeseburgers and ice-cream floats - not forgetting our own hard earned cash. Also a group of us from Danesmead used to go to a "keep-fit" class in town (think we were only about 13 and in no way needed it) and then straight into the same Wimpy for ice-cream floats. Very happy days, wonderful memories.

There were actually 3 wimpy bars in York, the third being on Malton Road in what is now the auto parts garage.
