This meeting of a Licensing Sub-Committee was convened to hear an application for a new premise licence located within the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead. In line with Licensing Act 2003 S18 (3)(a), when relevant representations are made against an application, a hearing must be held to consider them. A relevant representation made against an application for a new premises licence must relate to at least one of the four licensing objectives set out in the Licensing Act 2003. These are ‘The Prevention of Crime and Disorder’, ‘Public Safety’, ‘The Prevention of Public Nuisance’, and ‘The Protection of Children from Harm’.
The purpose of this hearing was for the Sub-Committee to hear the application, receive written and oral representations from other parties and then to make a decision in respect of the application.
The Applicant was Mr Will Calvert and the DPS was Mr Miles Slade for the premises Windsor and Eton Brewery, Units 1-4 Vanstittart Estate, Duke Street, Windsor, SL4 1SE. Mr Calvert had applied, under the Licensing Act 2003, for a new premises licence to be granted.
The application was to Licence the premises to now include the fourth unit in the building that the brewery operates, the brewery previously occupied the other 3 units. The brewery took over the unit in January 2021 and now has responsibility for all four units and the entire building. The unit will allow customers to try and sample all beers produced on site in a unique, well managed and comfortable environment. Brewery tours will also start and finish in the tap room with the tap room also becoming the brewery shop. The new tap room we will only trade until 10pm to showcase the bar as well managed.
