Not a venue as such, but a record shop and cafe, and a popular spot for local teens to hang out. Owner Roger was a jazz fan and stocked lots of american jazz on labels such as Blue Note.
Through his connections in America he was aware of what was happening in America and stocked lots of late 60s West Coast psychedelia. It was one of the few places where you could purchase US psychedelia in Cornwall.
Many people said it had one of the largest collections of records outside of London. The Cafe also had a mini and crazy golf course, and was used by the Falmouth bikers during the 1960s as a meeting place in the evenings throughout the week. O Sunday's they would all meet up at 2.30pm before going off on a run, usually to Perranporth, stopping for a cup of tea at the "Forge Cafe" in Goonhavern, or in the other direction to the "Telstar Cafe" at Goonhilly.
Ian remembes the Golf Cafe;
"I recall visting this whilst on holiday with my parents and sister in the summer of 1976 and being amazed to discover betond the usual collection of holiday and beach tat a treasure trove of LPs by US rock groups that I had never seen in the UK before. Roger must have had exceptionally good links to the States as he had full back catalogues of groups such as Aerosmith, Blue Oyster Cult, Mountain, Brownsville Station, Grand Funk et al which had not made it to record shops in sleepy Salisbury at that time and which I had only read about in the pull-out series on heavy metal that Sounds had then recently published.
I can recall as clear as only yesterday begging my parents to lend me some money so that I could take home more LPs, to avoid having to choose between the riches on offer. As it was, I must have been the only holidaymaker whose suitcase was stuffed with LPs and who could not wait for the holiday to end so I could get back home and play them."
