Ulverston landlord faces being banished from pubs

A LANDLORD faces being barred from pubs in his home town after being placed on the Bar Watch list.

controversy Andy Steele, the owner of Bar 6 in Ulverston, who faces being banned from pubs in his home town after being placed on the Bar Watch list

Andy Steele, who opened Bar 6 in Ulverston last year, has been added to the latest version of the list, which has recently been circulated to pubs in the town.

People whose name appears on the list are not welcome in any pub that has signed up to the Ulverston Bar Watch scheme.

Dave Mackenzie, who runs the Bar Watch scheme as manager of the Ulverston Licensed Victuallers’ Association, said he was unable to comment on the reasons for Mr Steele’s name being added to the list until after his appeal hearing next week.

He said: “He has appealed against it – he has got the right to appeal.”

A final decision will be made at the LVA meeting on Tuesday.

If the appeal is turned down, Mr Steele faces being excluded from pubs and bars in Ulverston for at least a year.

Names added to the list will remain indefinitely but must be reviewed every 12 months.

Even if Mr Steele’s appeal is unsuccessful, it is unlikely to affect his premises licence that was issued by South Lakeland District Council last year.

Mr Steele was granted a licence for Bar 6, in Daltongate, back in December, despite objections from neighbours.

A spokesman for SLDC said Mr Steele’s licence may be reviewed as a result of a matter arising on the premises that undermines one of the council’s four licensing objectives.

The objectives are prevention of public nuisance, protection of children from harm, prevention of crime and disorder, and public safety.

Mr Steele was unavailable for comment when the Evening Mail tried to contact him.

Have your say

Nothing to do with jealousy and envy. He deserves to be banned for what he did and his licence removed!
