Butchers Arms to learn its fate

THE future of the Butchers Arms pub in Yatton will become clearer tomorrow (Mon) when it goes before a licensing committee at the Town Hall.

North Somerset Council decided to review the pub’s licence following a series of complaints from local residents in High Street.

The Butchers Arms, which advertises its ‘warm, local friendly atmosphere’, was the subject of 22 police reports in a 12-month period from May 2010.

Residents said their lives were being made a misery following a series of brawls, swearing, urinating and drunkenness in the area.

The council can decide to revoke the licence completely or alter conditions such as the opening hours.
