Potters Bar pub bids for later booze licence

BOOZE could be sold as late as 2.30am if the managers of a pub in Potters Bar get their way.

Bosses at The Old Manor, in Wyllyotts Place, off Darkes Lane have asked Hertsmere Borough Council to vary their alcohol licence.

The application asks the council for permission to “increase the operating hours for the sale by retail of alcohol and late night refreshment and to provide the provision for regulated entertainment and entertainment facilities”.

Should it be approved, the pub would be able to sell alcohol between 9am and 2.30am, Monday to Saturday and between 10am and midnight on Sundays.

It would also allow staff to serve late-night refreshments between 11pm and 2am, Monday to Saturday and from 11pm until midnight on Sundays.

The application, however, does include measures to prevent crime, disorder and public nuisance, including the installation of both internal and external CCTV cameras and the provision of door staff.

It is currently out to public consultation until Thursday.
