Valleys pub has licence withdrawn following police raid

A valleys pub which was recently raided by police has had its premises licence revoked.

The alcohol licence for the Station Hotel in Caerau, Maesteg was removed after being reviewed under the Licensing Act 2003 at the request of South Wales Police.

The application for summary review was held following a raid carried out on 16 July, during which weapons, ammunition and drugs were discovered on the premises.

A closure order was also made by the Magistrates’ Court in relation to part of the premises which prohibits access for a period of three months from 2 August 2021.

Officers had reasonable grounds for believing that the use of the premises was resulting in nuisance to members of the public, and that there had been associated disorder which it was necessary to prevent from occurring.

The investigation by South Wales Police is continuing.
