WALES' First Minister has been barred from every pub in West Conwy after the latest restrictions on the hospitality industry were announced.

On Monday, Mark Drakeford announced that from Friday Welsh pubs and restaurants will be banned from serving alcohol and will be unable to open to customers after 6pm.

And members of the West Conwy Pub Watch have not taken kindly to the latest round of restrictions - choosing to ban Mr Drakeford from every pub in the area.

In a letter addressed to the First Minister, posted on social media, the West Conwy Pub Watch said he has been banned for "anti-social behaviour".

The pub watch scheme, which covers more than 70 pubs across Llandudno , Penrhyn Bay, Colwyn Bay, Rhos on Sea, Old Colwyn , Mochdre, Llandudno Junction, Conwy, Deganwy and Penmaenmawr, said that landlords would call the police if he were to enter any of their premises.

The letter states: "All licensees have a legal duty under the Licensing Act of 2003 to ensure that disorderly, argumentative, violent behaviour and antisocial behaviour does not occur on or around their premises and to prevent the occurrence of criminal offences.

"As a result of your behaviour on November 30, 2020 at the Senedd Cymru your actions class as antisocial behaviour for the damage caused to our members premises.

"The licensees of the West Conwy Pubwatch have jointly decided that in order to discharge their duty as referred to above they are exercising their right not allow you entry to their premises, which are listed on our website at

"Should you attempt to ignore this notice and enter any of the licensed premises listed on our website the assistance of police will be sought, if necessary to eject you from the premises and an extra six months will be added to your ban.
