The Liverpool Arms in Wellington Road (to your left of Sidoli's ice cream parlour) had been closed for a while until it was re-opened this month and renamed the Wellington:

Liverpool Arms, The Wellington

Welsh Government has been putting public money (our money) into re-opening pubs in various places including Rhyl disregarding the fact that alcohol kills about 1,000 people every year in Wales and makes many thousands more ill enough to require NHS treatment.

Whether this particular re-opening was subsidised I know not - but, in any case, there are three other pubs operating on opposite side of Wellington Road. They are: The North (formerly North Wales Inn), The Sun Inn and The Royal Oak:

New research shows any amount of alcohol can increase the risk of cancer - there is no such thing as a safe level of drinking the stuff. That is the opinion of the UK's health chiefs. You have been warned!


Recently I received an email from Mr. K. Parry asking where in Wellington Road the Nottingham Arms was. My guess would be Nos.48-54 where UC Bed Bargains store is now, nearly opposite the junction with Elwy Street.

FRI 29th JAN 2016 UPDATE: The Prince Of Wales pub on corner of Vale Road and Albert Street has undergone a change of colour and career. It is now 'Lifestyle Express Prince Of Wales Convenience Store' comprising off licence and grocery shop.
