Ulverston landlord barred from pubs for ‘breaking rules’
Last updated at 16:28, Thursday, 29 August 2013
A LANDLORD has been barred from pubs in his home town for at least six months after his appeal to be taken off a Bar Watch list was rejected.
Andy Steele, the owner of Bar 6 in Daltongate, Ulverston, is banned from local pubs after “breaking rules” associated with a scheme, set up by the Ulverston Licensed Victuallers’ Association.
He had been added to the latest version of the Bar Watch list, which is widely circulated to pubs and bars in the town.
The list records people who are not welcome in venues signed up to the scheme.
At a meeting of the ULVA on Tuesday, Mr Steele’s appeal against being put on the list was rejected by a panel which included fellow landlords.
The ban will last for six months, with his case due for review on January 7 when the ban could be extended or dropped.
Dave Mackenzie, who runs the Bar Watch scheme as manager of the ULVA, said he was unable to comment on why Mr Steele was added to the list but said he “broke rules” set out in the scheme.
Mr Steele was granted a licence for Bar 6 in December, despite objections from neighbours.
At the time, nearby residents complained that the site would be too noisy and be a public nuisance.
Mr Steele and his solicitor, Matthew Ratcliffe from Progression Solicitors, both declined to comment when approached by the Evening Mail.
