CUSTOMERS at Stafford’s Post House venue had to put the wine and beer on hold as bosses put up a sign saying they were unable to sell alcohol.
The notice appeared outside the venue yesterday and was seen by residents on social network site Facebook.
It stated: “To our customers, The Post House apologises but due to inforseen circumstances we are unable to serve alcohol today. This is temporary and will be resolved shortly.
“Thank you very much for your support and we look forward to seeing you again shortly.”
Daniel Foster, from the Post House, said they had applied for a new premises licence.
He said: “At present we are serving food and non-alcoholic drinks as normal in the Pillar restaurant and bistro and inviting our diners to bring their own alcohol. We are in the process of contacting all our customers to inform them of the situation.
“There is a statutory time period to obtain a premises licence and all the consulting bodies have been very helpful and supporting in getting the application underway so the licence can be considered by the Stafford Borough Council licensing committee.
“We are hoping to be trading as normal for mid-November. We apologise for any inconvenience to our friends and customers.”
