Exeter sports bar bids to serve booze for longer in proposed licence changes

An Exeter sports bar is seeking permission to serve booze for longer and to revamp its layout.

Allstars, in Sidwell Street, has asked the city council to vary the conditions of its premises licence.

It also wants to add a bar and an external seating area on its second floor.

If given the go-ahead, the sports bar will be able to sell alcohol and provide regulated entertainment from 8am from Mondays to Thursday and on Sundays. It currently has permission to do so from 10am.

It also wants to vary the end time for the sale of alcohol and provision of regulated entertainment on Fridays and Saturdays from 2am to 3am.

The bar is also seeking to change the hours for late-night refreshment on Fridays and Saturdays from 11pm to 2am to 11pm to 3am.

No changes to any of the other conditions of its licence are requested.

Anyone wishing to make a representation, either in favour or or against the application, must do so in writing to the Licensing Section of Exeter City Council or by email to licensing.team@exeter.gov.uk by April 15, 2020.

Exeter City Council will decide on the fate of the variation to the premises licence at a later date.

The authority will also determine whether Souvlaki and Gyros Ltd, in Buddle Lane, will be able to supply alcohol in the evening.

The Greek restaurant has asked for a premises licence to sell alcohol between 5pm and 10pm, from Mondays to Sundays, and to play recorded music indoors.

At present, there is no premises licence for the building and representations must be made by April 10.
