That is according to a premises licence signposted in the front windows of the former Jail House Bistro, next to the Ropewalk Shopping Centre, which was noticed by the Hinckley Free Press today (Saturday, 26 February).

The site is also ‘under offer’ with local letting agents, Loveitts.

It has sat empty after closing its doors to its users back in April 2019 – two years and 10 months ago in total.

According to the newly-signposted notice, the applicant, Ms. Susannah Lee, of Birmingham-based barrister group, Citadel Chambers, is proposing that the premises licence should be amended ‘by the extension of a licensable area’.

The applicant wants the licence to be extended, so that 4am on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, can be included in it, as well as the ‘modification of conditions’.

Representations to this application must be made in writing by 10 March 2022.
