The (New) New Inn

Changes are afoot at the The New Inn in Station Approach. The owners hosted a meeting with residents recently where they presented part of their plans for the business, prior to the former “Harvester” closing in March for a major refurbishment. The restaurant is to move onto the ground floor, while a function room is envisaged on the first floor. We understand that an element of “take-away” of food and drink is also proposed.

Now a licensing application has been received. The owners are seeking an extension in hours to 12:30am, as well as permission for music, dance and other activities. Also, an extension to 10am on New Year’s Day as well as permission to hold 20 events a year without notifying the police (currently 12). A regular opening time of 8am for hot beverages is also sought.

Your ward members are currently examining the proposals, some aspects of which will also require planning permission, which ought to be obtained before any licence variations are granted.

One thought on “The (New) New Inn”

  1. I am very pleased to see the refurbishment of the New Inn, I look forward to dining in the new restaurant. However, I am more interested in the possibility of a function room and hotel facilities. I am celebrating my 50th birthday this year and am looking for a fantastic local venue as well as accommodation. If you can supply any information regarding the new status of the New Inn i would be extremely grateful. Thank you in advance.
