Thanks, Sue. I also have that down as the Tudno Vaults, so it must have been:

Tudno Vaults->Steam Packet->Plumes->Town House

It's where I began my drinking carreer Dave. It was where the art/book shop is now. A couple of doors along from the Townhouse. I believe it became Dixons when it closed down around 1983 ish.

Of course! I should have known that, we've discussed it on the Forum in the past!   ZXZ

So, the Steam Packet has always been the Steam Packet but the Town House used to be called Plumes and. before that, the Tudno Vaults.

Cheers, mate!  Z**

I was sure it was where the Townhouse is, didn't think it that was far up Mostyn street - have just found out it was where the Stanley pub was at 70 Mostyn street  !

If memory serves me right (?) The Steam Packet used to be called The Stanley and was where Dixons used to be.
The Tudno was latterly also called Plumes and the Town House.

Thanks all!  *&(

So the Steampacket was definitely originally the Stanley. I have found some info on the Stanley:

Nos. 68 & 70 Mostyn Street - Including Former Stanley Hotel, Llandudno

Two terraced houses of about 1865 on Llandudno's most prestigious shopping street. The houses are depicted on the OS 1:500 Town Plan of 1889, when No. 70 was the 'Stanley Hotel'. Now shops with accommodation above.
Three storey buildings with basements and attics, under a common slate gabled roof. They present two bay stuccoed facades to Mostyn Street. The ground floors have modern shop fronts and the first floors each have a bay window. The attics are lit by gabled dormers.
The houses were originally two rooms deep with lateral stairs and corridors. There were service ranges and outbuildings to the rear. The ground floor retail premises have been extended through, as have the basements.

Tudno Vaults, No. 64 Mostyn Street, Llandudno

A three storey building with attics, of about 1865, that may originally have been built as a house. On the OS 1:500 Town Plan of 1889 it is the 'Tudno Vaults' and it is still a licensed premises, although there have been changes of name.
The building presents a two bay facade to Mostyn Street. The ground floor has an elaborate public house facade with a central bay window curbed in glazed terracotta, with doorways to either side. The first floor has two less elaborate bay windows. The attic is it by gabled dormers.

Can someone remind me where the 'Steampacket' pub was?

70 Mostyn St. Prior to it being named The Steampacket it was called The Stanley

Thanks for the photo, Trojan. I seem to remember that it became a Dixons in 1985 - was it the Steampacket directly before then or has it had some other use inbetween? I just cant recall what it looked like as a pub, maybe a photo will pop up at some point.  $

Yes, I believe it was the Steampacket prior to becoming Dixons. Dave Brady ran 'The Steamie' before it's closure.

I remember what it looked like - had quite a large window in front, which enabled people to see directly inside the pub, and if my memory serves me right (sometimes it doesn't) I remember it being an Ansell's/Tetley pub, with the sinage being their traditional 1970's style tan/orange background, with STEAMPACKET in white letters.

Cheers, mate. I can't remember the Steampacket at all.  :( Surely there must be a photo of it out there somewhere?
