A pub in Kingsbury has been ordered to employ bouncers and install CCTV following a catalogue of violent clashes on its premises including a fight among women drinkers.
The Green Man in Slough Lane was also at the heart of a 10-strong brawl where a drinker smashed pint glasses and snapped snooker cues in half before threatening people with them.
Brent Police sought action against the pub after they were repeatedly called to the venue to deal with assaults, thefts and drug offences including the mass brawl which took place in June.
Last week, Brent Council’s Licensing Committee ordered the pub to install Home Office approved CCTV to cover the entrance, bar area and the outside seated zone and employ two door supervisors after they heard the venue had neither in place.
The pub must also ban children on the premises after 9pm with under 18s only being allowed to stay after 6pm if they are having a meal with an adult.
Other requirements include asking any drinkers who look under 25 for proof of age if they are buying alcohol, allowing a maximum of 10 people outside to smoke at one time after 11pm, and putting up notices about the venue’s zero-tolerance drug policy.
PC Michael Sullivan, from Brent Licensing Team, said: “ The measures put in place will ensure both patrons and staff at the premises are safe.
“The pub now has a new management team, which are very good and keen to make the pub a success and have already started implementing the conditions I asked for.”
