Licence for Rushden Hotel Refused
An application by Mr. Peter Scaife Neville for a publican’s licence at Westward Private Hotel, Shirley Road, Rushden, was refused at the adjourned annual general licensing meeting at Wellingborough.
There were no objections to the application and the magistrates did not give their reasons for refusal.
Conditions which were suggested were that the licence should be a term licence for three and a quarter years, there should be no bar, intoxicating liquor should be served, sold or supplied only to residents and their guests and to non-residents having a meal.
Capt. J. S. Parker represented the applicant. Magistrates were Ald. A. Allebone (chairman), Mrs. J. Burkitt, Coun. J. Rowlatt and Mr. F. Green (Rushden).
