Planning Application Approved

I knew it wouldn't be a problem but, until it was formally approved, I could never quite relax. But now I can. Yesterday the planning application for change of use was approved by Lancaster City Council's Licencing Committee.

Just got to get cracking now on the building work.

Licence Approved!

We now have a licence.

The planning application is being heard on Monday.

All being well we can start work and get ready to open, hopefully in July but certainly no later than August.

Watch this space!

The Conqueror Alehouse Micropub

Spent a wonderful evening in the Conqueror, Ramsgate last night. Colin and his wife are first class hosts and the ale and cider were top quality. Only complaint is that we had such a great evening the time flew far too quickly.

The customers were a great bunch too, especially Mark and Jayne who we hope will be able to venture north when we open. If you visit, which I recommend, then the locally sourced pork pie is a must and he does a mean mature cheddar and crackers too.

The Conqueror is CAMRA's pub of the year for East Kent. They are now going head to head with the pub of the year for West Kent. My money's on The Conqueror winning pub of the year for Kent. Come on Colin lad, you can do it!!
