News: Work starts on new Rotherham bar / restaurant


Work has got underway on a new bar / restaurant in the popular Rotherham village of Wickersley.

It comes just as Rotherham Council approve new powers that could limit the number of new or varied alcohol licences being granted in the area.

The latest venue is at the former Village Butcher premises on Bawtry Road.

Rothbiz reported last year that the proposals involve a change of use at 151 and 153 Bawtry Road and Unit 6 on The Courtyard to create a combined unit as a restaurant.

A recent social media post from The Courtyard shows "the next phase of our major development" with the "renovation of our sister restaurant and bar."

When the plans for 151 and 153 Bawtry Road and Unit 6 of The Courtyard were approved, planners concluded that: "There are several existing A3 restaurants and cafes operating in the local area and it is not considered that this change of use would have any additional adverse effect on residential amenity."

Earlier plans for a craft ale bar were refused by the Council.

Using new powers, the local authority is introducing a new statement of licensing policy that includes proposals for a Cumulative Impact Policy which details that an area of Wickersley village is proposed to become a Cumulative Impact Zone.


This would mean that applicants "must be able to demonstrate to the Council and other responsible authorities that granting a new or varied licence will not add to the cumulative impact already being experienced within the area."

Seasons Restaurant has applied for a Premises Licence with Alcohol for the new property at 151 - 152 Bawtry Road.

So they refuse to grant a license for a craft beer bar where the nearest other one is 2 miles away at the stag, but then say its fine to have another wine bar/restaurant of which there's already loads within a few yards. Great.

that's just what's wanted in Wickersley.
another bar to tempt the youngsters away from the city centre to just here
trouble has escalated recently as the "clientel" has moved downhill.

Good on them I say. Restaurants aren't places people generally come to get hammered, civilised drinking and good food. We don't get any trouble down at our restaurant, good luck to them from a fellow restaurateur!

So.. "Old Git" just let me know if I've got your point here. You believe that the younger generation have gone down hill.. Okay so you are running a lovely stereo type of young people being roudy and some of them causing trouble obviously means we all do. So.. By that means, hows it going learning the internet? Is technology a challenge? Are you racist due to old age views? As you can probably see stereotypes are equally stupid to make. Ill admit as part of this generation that there are morons apart of it and even idiots younger than us. But its up to everyone to teach us and help us improve not push us further into this to make us argue more and more against your views. Its stupid so give it up and help change the problem stop being a common cause of it.
