A PUB has been forced to cut back on the hours it can sell booze following reports of noise, violence and underage drinking.
The Oak Tavern, in Moors Walk, WGC, had its alcohol and entertainment licences reduced by the Welwyn Hatfield licensing sub committee after police asked the council to review the pub's licence.
The decision follows reports of excessive noise, serious assaults, fighting, and people as young as 16 drinking alcohol on the premises.
