As many of you are aware we recently applied for a variation on the times of our permitted hours of opening and after careful consideration Southwark Council
have elected to alter our hours.
From this week, therefore, we will be open until 1.30am on Friday and Saturday nights only.
The licensing body has reached its decision based on a number of restrictions and guidelines that we ourselves have provided. These points were given in order to answer several specific issues raised by local residents who chose to make representation to our application.
With this in mind it has been, and continues to be our intention to behave responsibly as licensees and maintain positive relations with our neighbours, specifically those on Bermondsey Street
and Newhams Row.
We are delighted to be the first venue on Bermondsey Street
to be granted a late license. It is a really exciting time for the area and, given the type of establishment we have created, it can only further the high level of local regeneration that has been so evident over recent years. We hope to set a precedent for any future licensed premises in our immediate locality.
Looking forward to seeing you here soon enjoying the extended opening hours - knowing, of course, that you only have a short walk home to contend with at the end of a longer local night out…
