Llandudno...Fountains Bar shuts as alcohol licence 'surrendered' and repossession notice posted on door
Thoughts Of Mrs Colwyn Bay
Sad news and another nail in the coffin for Llandudno.
A popular seaside resort bar has closed and a repossession note has been posted on its front door. Fountains Bar & Cafe on Upper Mostyn Street, Llandudno hasn't reopened since it hosted a big New Year's Eve party.
Locals have reported seeing fridges, sound, and lighting equipment being removed from Fountains Bar. The signage for the bar has also been removed.
At first mystery surrounding the sudden closure as sheeting was placed up across the windows, but a repossession notice has now been attached to the front door of the venue
North Wales Live was given an image, taken from outside the bar which appears to show dismantled tables and chairs inside.
A Conwy County Borough Council licensing team spokesperson: "We can confirm that the (alcohol) license has been surrendered. The result of any type of license being surrendered is that no licensable activity may take place." Fountains Bar Cafe was approached for comment.
The repossession notice was posted by London-based agents Solomon Taylor and Shaw LLP on behalf of the landlord, Norwis Investments Limited on January 17. It stated: "Take notice that the landlord has today re-entered the premises being 114 Upper Mostyn Street and 1, 2 and 3 Llewelyn Avenue Llandudno following the disclaimer of all interests, in the premises under the Lease on 23rd December 2022.
"As a consequence, the lease has been determined, and the premises have been secured. And take notice that no one can lawfully enter the premises unless they have been given authorization by the landlord."
"Any attempt to enter the premises without the Landlord's authority may be a criminal offense and result in a prosecution."
The agency also told North Wales Live it had taken the action on behalf of the building owners and was unable to comment further on the matter.
