YOUNG people have been banned from drinking in a town centre pub on weekend evenings to curb yobbish behaviour
YOUNG people have been banned from drinking in a town centre pub on weekend evenings to curb yobbish behaviour.
Bexley councillors ruled that The Drayman in Crook Log, Bexleyheath, must close its doors to under-21s on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, at a licence review last Wednesday.
The pub's management team was also banned from offering 'unlimited alcohol' and buy one get one free deals.
Police called for the pub's landlord to be brought before councillors after continuous violence amongst revellers crowding outside the venue or at a neighbouring kebab shop.
Councillors were shown a police log of calls which recorded an incident where a 35-year-old man punched a 21-year-old woman so hard he broke her nose and knocked teeth out.
The weekend under-21s ban does not apply to functions such as weddings.
