Coronavirus: Harrogate pub faces licence review after it broke coronavirus regulations

Harrogate Borough Council is reviewing the licence of the Coach and Horses pub on West Park after it broke coronavirus regulations.

The pub was served a prohibition notice after setting up tables and chairs for customers.

Action was taken jointly by the borough council and North Yorkshire Police yesterday after the pub had continued to trade in breach of coronavirus laws.

Advice was given to three pubs in Harrogate town centre over the weekend after concerns were received by the council’s enforcement team.

Despite the prohibition notice, the Coach and Horses continued to trade in the same way. Council officers and police officers returned to the premises yesterday to serve notice of the licence review.

As a result of the review the licensee of the pub could have their licence amended or revoked.

The three pubs have now agreed to remain closed until the government further eases the coronavirus restrictions.

Councillor Mike Chambers, Harrogate Borough Council’s cabinet member for housing and safer communities, said:

“Even after officers visited the Coach and Horses pub, and advised the landlord of their responsibilities, they still felt the need to continue breaching coronavirus regulations. Sadly, this has now resulted in the review of the pub’s licence.

“These regulation are there to protect our communities. They are there to help prevent the spread of coronavirus that is putting an incredible strain on the NHS, and the doctors and nurses who are working tirelessly to care for our loved ones."
