Restaurant Taste of PortugalIn Cornwall, barbecue was banned. Even after complaining about the stench and noise, he still had his license.
Following complaints that led to a review of the premises license, it was reported that the Portuguese restaurant could no longer keep outdoor barbecues. The Coffee Village was allowed to hold the Taste of Portugal license after review by the Cornwall Council, the provincial council in which Bodmin is located.
The council’s licensing legal subcommittee reviewed the license at a meeting this week at the request of Richard Brown, a close neighbor of the cafe. As reported by Cornwall Live, a neighbor said there were several issues related to the premises’ smell, noise and nuisance.
He also stressed that it affects people living nearby and said that the cafe located in Bodmin undermines the licensing objectives. He said the cafe should lose the license.
However, last Wednesday, restaurant representatives agreed that they were willing to work with a neighbor and did not want to cause inconvenience. As a result of complaints after the barbecue held last summer, they planned not to repeat the event.
Richard Brown, describing his concerns, said, “It was noisy, it stinks incredibly and sometimes my fire alarm goes out due to smoke. We would like to give the residents a little consideration.”
He also complained about parking, but because he mentioned a private alley, the congregation could do little. Richard Brown also pointed out that in the summer, residents cannot keep the garden or windows open because of the smell and noise.
Manuel Rocha, from Taste of Portugal, understands the neighbor’s situation, does not want to bother him, and wants to help make the neighborhood a place for everyone. He acknowledged that this was a mistake that could have been made during a major celebration of the end of the epidemic.
The cafe manager admitted that when the barbecue took place, people were “probably too excited” to relax after the lockdown. Still, he promised they would not have a barbecue anymore.
The court confirmed the hotel’s license, with the guarantee that there would be no more barbecues and no noise at night.
