Royal Rink, Yarm Lane, Stockton

The Royal Rink (roller skating) was built on the site of the Theatre Royal, and later became the Maison De Danse (No.21 Yarm Lane). This in turn became Riley’s Snooker & Pool Bar, The Players Lounge and most recently a bar called Room 21. Was the rink converted into the Masion or was it rebuilt? Did the Maison look anything like this on the inside? with the curved roof being quite distinctive.

  1. We used to live in a flat opposite the Maison, over a dry cleaners shop, which was next door to the pub. Anyone remember what the dry cleaners was called. This was around 1951/52. The flat was lit by gas and it was one of my tasks to get mantles for the gas jets.
