A restaurant in Blackheath could lose its licence following tired neighbours’ complaints about noise in the early hours.

C’s restaurant in Blackheath Road will be subject to a licence review on Wednesday.

The eatery is at risk following a number of warnings by Greenwich Council’s enforcement team, who suspect the restaurant is not sticking to its rule of only serving booze to those who are having a meal.

Councillors will be asked to revoke the licence because “of continued breaches of the conditions and hours of operation of the licence” and “the lack of cooperation by the current licence holder to engage in promoting the licensing objectives”.

C’s has historically operated as a restaurant catering principally for the African community, according to documents, and alcohol is permitted “only as ancillary to a substantial meal.”

The restaurant has permission to serve food and drink until midnight Monday to Saturday, but neighbours say the noise goes on until 2am some nights.

Between January and October last year, the council received more than 40 complaints from neighbours angry about excessive noise from punters.

The council stepped in in May, having the eatery sign up to a special action plan – but neighbours started complaining again just a few months later.

“The complaints received from around the end of August 2018 indicated that the premises were again operating beyond the terminal hour of the licence,” council documents explain.

One complaint said: “It is now 3.26am and they are still shouting at the top of their voices. This has been going on all evening and in to the morning.”

Another said: “Loud music and crowds have kept me awake each evening since. Saturday night was by far the loudest and went on until almost 4am”.

Councillors will consider C’s licence next week, and could decide to revoke or put new conditions on it at a meeting.
