A PUB in Towyn which had its licence suspended is to re-open next week after an application for it to welcome back customers during the Easter weekend was rejected.

Sunny’s Bar, on Towyn Road, had its licence suspended for three months in December – taking effect from January 3 - after being accused of holding an under-age disco last September.

Today (March 27), the pub confirmed its re-opening date will be Wednesday, April 3.

EJP Entertainment, which runs Sunny’s Bar, had applied for a temporary event notice, allowing it to open and sell alcohol between March 27 and April 2.

But, a Conwy County Borough Council spokesperson said, “the application for a temporary events notice at Sunny’s Bar, Towyn has been rejected”.

A statement from Sunny’s Bar read: “After a much-anticipated wait, we're thrilled to announce that Sunny’s Bar is reopening its doors on Wednesday, April 3.

“Come and join us as we welcome back our beloved locals and holidaymakers for some family-friendly fun.

“We've missed you all and can't wait to create more unforgettable memories together. See you soon.”

Bentley’s Sports Bar and Nightclub, located with Sunny’s, also had its licence suspended for the same time period.

At a hearing last week, North Wales Police’s licensing officer, Aaron Haggas, accused of the pub of trying to "play clever games" in applying to have its licence restored early.

According to the force, children had been seen lying drunk on the pavement outside the pub, while there were suspicions of ketamine and cocaine consumption.

The suspension expires at 11.59pm on April 2.
