I was walking past and noticed that there are some notices in the window about a 'minor variation' to their license.

Hours extended to 1am on a Thursday, until 2am Fri&Sat and midnight Sunday.

Deadline 29th to voice any concerns to the council

No they don't. No bars in this area open till those hours. Even ones in far more suitable locations, I.e not close to residential.

Jam circus, which is on a high street(of sorts), the Chandos certainly isn't with both entrances facing residential streets, has variations between 11.00 sun-wed, 12.00 thurs and 1.00 on fri/sat.

The license suggests to 1.00 most days and 2.00 at the weekend. Outrageous when you consider the noise that comes from the pub, only worsened by the later hours recently.

Any objection should be under one or both of the following:

Prevention of public nuisance
Prevention of crime and disorder

And as mentioned by the original poster - email by the end of play tomorrow, better still today if you can.

Stone Bar stayed open until 2am on Friday and Saturday but they actually had a licence until 4am!
Chandos currently has a licence to serve alcohol until 1am most days, 2am on Friday and Saturday, and midnight on Sunday.

You can download the full list from

My suggestion would be to request outdoor drinking is stopped after 11pm. This appears to be a condition for the Honor Oak Pub, or perhaps they just do it to please neighbours. Either way, it seems like a good solution.

The council would need a very good reason to reduce the hours of the existing licence for the Chandos.

I would say the positioning of the stone bar (high street) and the Chandos (more residential) are quite different.

And as someone who is affected by their licensing arrangements and conduct, I'll certainly put as strong a case forward as my limited capabilities allow!

I'd rather compare to the Brockley Jack - big community pub, serving food, thriving and stops serving at 11.00p.m every night, except Sundays when they have the courtesy to stop serving at 10.30.

I live in hope, and if that appeals to others on here, please put in your objection.

At least we can say we tried.
