Oswestry pub hoping to extend its hours
One of Oswestry’s best known pubs has applied to extend its opening time until 4.30am on weekends.
The Boars Head in Willow Street, can currently welcome drinkers until 3.30am from Monday to Saturday.
But now it has applied to Shropshire Council to open an hour later on Friday and Saturday nights.
The proposal will be heard by the authority’s licensing act sub-committee.
A decision is expected to be made at the meeting. It will stop serving drinks half an hour before closing time.
One representation has been made against the move, by an unnamed resident concerned over crime and disorder fears.
The pub also wishes to open until 1.30am on Sunday nights/Monday mornings, rather than the current 1am arrangement.
It also wants the changes to apply to Christmas Eve and Boxing Day as well as New Year’s Eve.
The panel will meet at 10am at Shirehall on May 29.
