New owners set to re-open Biddulph pub

PINTS could soon be pulled again at a past popular entertainment venue in Biddulph, after its has been granted a premises licence by the district council.
The Biddulph Arms, on Congleton Road, was run by several different tenants before it closed more than a year ago.
But now the pub, on C0ngleton Road, has now been bought by Inderjit Garcha and is set to reopen despite objections from local residents about past noise issues.
Mr Garcha told the licensing hearing: “We have bought the property – we are not here for six months and then disappear. We own the shop next door and we are here for the long term.
“We are looking to make significant investment to the property and bring it back to life,” he added.
Five objections were considered which raised concerns about late opening times – until 1.30am at weekends and 12.30am on weekdays.
But senior licensing officer Mike Towers told the hearing there had been no complaints about the pub since 2017.
