Prince Albert Hotel

Picture source: Darkstar


 
The Prince Albert was situated on Rendezvous Street and is now in residential use.
 
 I lived here as a child in the early 1950s , my parents Nelson and Olive Williams ran the the pub and also the commercial hotel too until about 1958. I remember a resident Mr Fleming and whist drives in the bar in the afternoon. The yard at the rear had a tailors workshop above the garage/ storeroom. My mother cooked for the dining room and also ran the bars, the toilets were in the yard behind the gates, we had a boxer dog Butch who challenged anyone out of hours ! Almost next door was the cinema, I remember seeing Alice in Wonderland there and a church too and going on a Sunday school outing from there.
