Good news at last. Following several months of a protracted battle with Herefordshire Council's Licensing Department, new landlords Gary & Sonia CALDWELL have received their premises licence following the Licensing Department withdrawing their objections earlier this week. The new team received a wealth of support, ranging from other local landlords, the RW Mayor, Hereford BID, Herefordshire CAMRA to name but a few. This lost jewel of an ancient inn is now open, offering a wide range of Irish food, drink and live entertainment. Let's hope that Herefordshire punters can support this new venture by sampling some real Dublin-brewed Guinness etc, all in moderation, of course.

Yep, good luck to them. I particularly like the sound of the Irish Guinness!

This is good news and I wish them the best of luck. 

 

What were the original objections from the licensing department?

They were published on the Council website in advance of the hearing. Too lengthy to reproduce here. However they were abandoned once the full circumstances were aired - hence the hearing cancelled.
According to their website, The Grapes are putting on a big programme of live music events as well. Consequently I think this place is going to be a great addition to the Hereford scene, and deserve our full support.
