Wasn't Barclays Bank at 84 also a pub in an earlier life?

The Criterion, I believe. A local bus conductor, a one Stan Anton, used to tell the passengers that that they were approaching  the 4 ' C's ' area of Llandudno.
The Criterion, The Clock,The Carlton, and the Clarence.  :laugh:

Stan Anton was a very well known local toast-master and I think his son (whose name escapes me at present) 'followed in his shoes'.

I imagine you are referring to David Anton,  who lives with his beautiful wife in Penryhn Bay.

(this is deja vu, as we went through this on the old forum)

Not only is David a fantastic toast-master, but he is a fabulous joiner and carpenter ... done excellent work on my house.

He is also a thoroughly good bloke.

I don't know why people are calling it the 'Steampacket' it was the Steam Packet. I should know; I grew up there.

Welcome to the Forum, Sargantana.  :)

Do you have any photos of the Steam Packet, interior or exterior? Would be great to see some. I just can't remember it at all, although I must have walked past many times as a child.

I think the entrance to the Clock was down the side, DaveR, and that was an off-licence at the front managed by a chap I once knew called Len Hibbert.

Fairly sure it was the right-hand side of Sumners (now Poundland)?

the stanley was well known for underage drinking in the back bar out of sight of the barstaff in the late 60's early 70's and then it was refurbished and renamed the steampacket in 1977 and was run by a couple called mark and jan for about 2 or 3 years who i had the pleasure of working for, after that i believe dave brady took it on but then it became known for trouble especially on a weekend

I used the back bar in the Stanley in the middle 1960s and it was dead rough then. It attracted customers that preferred that no ,one knew where they were so the backalley door was popular. Before anyone asks what I was doing in there, no, I was'ent bothered if anyone saw me, after all I lived in Rhyl so noone knew me, but I was in the middle of a very intense romance, if thats the correct word, with the wife of the tempory Ind Coope manager who was running it. He did'nt mind, if it wasent me it would have someone else. Mike
