A pub with potential?


On the face of it you would think this pub, the Estuary in Llansanffraid Glan Conwy, North Wales, has a lot going for it. Formerly known as the Conway Vale, it’s an attractive gabled building, in a good situation on the main road next to the scenic Conwy estuary, and not far from the major population centres of Llandudno and Colwyn Bay. But, when I recently passed the site, it’s been completely flattened.

And, a couple of miles down the road, the once-popular Tal-y-Cafn Inn, also well-situated by the river, is closed and boarded too.

  1. @Mudgie, it might be a bit premature to read the last rites over the Tal Y Cafn right now http://www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/tal-y-cafn-pub-conwy-3000536

  2. I think I'd seen that tweeted by Arfur Daley, Bill, but as it's just down the road and I'd taken a picture of it I thought I might as well shoehorn it into the post. I remember when it was a conspicuously popular and thriving pub, so hopefully someone can make a go of it again. They won't with the Estuary, though...
