Or maybe Quigley's? (there was a Quigley's at Chichester but I'm sure there were other branches).

Again, I maybe mistaken, but I'm sure the Oliver's lived just a few doors up from the New Crown, facing Gypsies Green stadium.
Always used to see their business (fruit & veg) vehicles parked outside. Maybe they still live there, I'm really not too sure.

Yea, there was an Oliver's near there, and at the top of Stanhope Road.

There was a Quigley's on Whiteleas Way.

And played them on a Fender guitar - Oh yeah.
