Pub stripped of entertainment licence after loud gigs 4th October 2018

A pub has been stripped of its entertainment licence after neighbours complained about noise.

A Vale of White Horse council’s licensing committee found it had allowed a Foo Fighters tribute act gig this month that was so loud that a couple living next door “fled their house” – according to the Oxford Mail.

According to the report, neighbours said they had lived in their home for 26 years and that noise from the pub only became a problem 11 years ago.

People who live in the vicinity of the pub, The North Star in Steventon, said they had lodged 16complaints about noise coming from the pub in 2016 alone – but the landlord of the pub changed in early 2017.

But they said the volume of the recent concert was so intrusive that it felt like a 'punishment beating' and was 'physically uncomfortable' to hear.

Other residents said removing the licence would be like 'using a sledgehammer to crack a nut' and that the pub was the centre of the village.
