Mrs. Roberts explained that the premises would predominantly operate as an afternoon tearoom but a licence had been requested up to 11.00 p.m. to allow for the holding of occasional special events such as baby showers/anniversaries.  The intention was to open no earlier than 10.00 a.m. and to close between 5.00 p.m. – 6.00 p.m. on week days and operate primarily as an eatery and a chef had been employed for that purpose.  Assurances were provided that the intention was not to create a nuisance or rowdy establishment but provide a civilized and genteel establishment which would enhance the town.
