EErr, has this thread gone a bit astray. "Llandudno Pubs Gone but Not Forgotten"    The last seven or eight posts are about chapels. Not that I'm bothered, I have used both in my time , one group more than another but I'm not telling which

Before my time, Mike, but it was on Mostyn Street.  I recall being told it was in the vicinity of where Sumners/Arnold's was, could be wrong though.  It was established in the 1860s but presumably had gone by the Great War.

 The Stanley was the roughest pub in town in the 1960s. Partly because you could get into the back door off the narrow entry that runs behind all the shops in Mostyn street. So anyone who didnít want to broadcast where they were drinking went in via the back door
   How did I know? Because a lady I was having a very steamy affair with in the mid 1960s was a close friend of the landlady

Naughty boy Mike     $smack$

I remember going into the public bar in the Stanley when I was a teenager one Christmas time.    When I went in to the public bar from the back street there was no one there but the lounge bar was packed and everyone seemed to be enjoying the Christmas festivities.
I ordered a pint of Double Diamond and noted that there was a hospitality tray there with 11 mince pies on it.
Now I'm rather partial to a mince pie so I helped myself to them and by the time I had finished my pint, I had also finished the mince pies too, all 11 of them so it was time to make a quick exit through the back door

Great pic f the Steam Packet. But I remember it a bit later when it was an Ansell's pub (?) and it was orange and brown. Also good to see a bit of the old National Milk Bar to the right.

Prior to that it was called the Stanley and that's where I was caught out by my father for under age drinking.   I remember it also for one Christmas Day many many years ago when I went to the public bar for a drink.
The public bar was empty but everyone was in the lounge bar which was packed solid.  So there was only me in the bar along with the hospitality tray that had 11 mince pies on it.      I'm rather partial to a mince pie so by the time I had finished my pint of Double Diamond the mince pies had all gone, quickly followed by me.       :-[

My first ever drink in a pub was in the Clock in Mostyn Street,  I went into the public bar which had its entrance in Market Street and had half a pint of mild which cost me 7d, that's equivalent  to 3p  nowadays

My mum used to work at the National Milk Bar and she was always popping next door to 'borrow' a cup of lager!
