Selkirk pub shut over licensing concerns

A pub has had its licence suspended after selling alcohol outside permitted hours at Selkirk Common

Riding in June.

The town’s Station Bar has been closed until 25 February by the licensing board after it failed to apply for an extension to opening hours.

There has also been “several instances” of disturbances related to the pub.

And the designated bar manager’s personal licence has been suspended until 25 March for failure to notify the board of a drug supply conviction.

They are the first suspensions in the Borders since the Licensing Scotland Act 2005 came into force.

The board met to consider the licence at the request of Lothian and Borders Police but the decisions can be appealed to the courts.

Scottish Borders Licensing Board convener Gavin Logan said: “The board was very concerned about these breaches of the licensing objectives and took the appropriate action.”
