Rather than no license or not renewing license, I understand it was the wrong license.  I dont think the new owners, who are working their ***** off to make a success of the place, would do it intentionally.  As someone said they have to wait a month, and for the next licensing meeting to open again.

Well could they perhaps serve free beer and lager up to say 3 pints and charge, but charge an entrance fee of say £8 or sell non alcoholic drinks at £3. with a bog2f?

Lights were on but it looked like no-one was at home last night. Boards advertising food were out though.

I think its dreadful.  Feel so sorry for them :( They have worked so hard to get it looking good and it might not be everyones cup of tea but at least they have put their money where their mouths are and done something with it!!  Better than it being turned into a shop! or something worse!

Dont understand why anyone could wish them bad luck, especially on a community board!

Absolutely, the UK economy needs enterprising people who provide employment and wealth. This isn't going to be provided by council clerk who's ambition is limited to having a wet dream over finding an licencing anomaly.

Seriously Wheels, you can't mean that.

Fully agree with Lisa and Duke.  For what it's worth, I thought the revamped Norfolk Arms was terrific - excellent beer, good food and a very pleasant atmosphere.  And a welcome change from the dominance of Robinson's pubs around Marple.  i sincerely hope the owners come through these short-term difficulties and make a real success of the place.

I understood there was some problem with drinking there, and that in the attempt to throw out the unsavoury character, two cars were damaged when barrels were thrown into the windscreens.

I hope this is not a sign of things to come..... I'm looking forward to trying somewhere else to eat ...

In which case, it's the unsavory character that needs dealing with, not the pub.

Yes I do this guy was operating without a licence. Why is he to be cut the slack and others arn't.

I don't see it as good business practice to knowingly  ignore the law.

I put the question back to you you can't seriously support this behaviour.
