Sheffield pub changes beer garden policy following complaints from residents
A Sheffield pub has changed its beer garden policy following complaints from residents since it re-opened after lockdown.
The Stags Head on Psalter Lane, Nether Edge, said ‘slight changes’ have been made to its outside service because of complaints from local residents about noise.
In a Facebook post, the pub's management team warned that any customers failing to leave the beer garden in ‘an orderly manner’ or being respectful of residents risk being permanently barred.
The team said: “We are making slight changes to our opening hours for outside service.
“As of today (April 15) you will need to be sat at a table before 10pm to get last orders.
“Last orders will be at 10.30pm and the outside area will be closed at 11.30pm.
“We also ask when leaving our pub you do so in an orderly manner, respecting our neighbours who have small children etc.
“Anyone not sticking to these rules will be asked to leave and may face permanent exclusion from our pub.
“All we want is for people to come and have a great time, enjoy our food and drinks, then leave as peacefully as possible.”
The management team said it had been ‘appalled’ to hear from residents at how loud some customers had been when leaving the pub since it re-opened after lockdown earlier this week.
In another post, the team said: “We know this isn’t everyone but a small amount of silly individuals.
“Our team we not stand for this nonsense and will cut people off from being served if this continues.
“Please don’t take our glassware with you and please leave the pub in an orderly manner.”
