Performance of Live Music
Every Day:18:00 to 23:00
Indoors
Comments:Our upstairs bar is an ideal venue for small acoustic events of folk or classical music. We have a piano which customers sometimes like to play or play in accompaniment to someone singing. We would envisage these being monthly or possibly weekly events. There have been no complaints about noise or any other nuisance from the piano being played and we would anticipate that as we intend no amplification, there would be none in the future. The events would not finish late and would have no impact on those living nearby.Non Standard Timings: It is possible that occasionally groups of musicians may wish to perform on an alternate day of the week. We would like the flexibility for this to be possible.

Comments:Non Standard Timings:We would like the flexibility to be able to serve alcohol from 10:00 am on a few occasions in the year. These would typically be in connection with weddings or similar celebrations. This would enable, for example, a wedding party to meet and have a glass of champagne before the service.New Year's Eve - We would like the flexibility to be able to stay open late as we wish, as currently allowed.
