Cumbrian pub aiming for fresh start after revamp

A Workington pub will reopen at Easter following refurbishment.

Padua’s, on Washington Street, closed at the beginning of this month.

It will have a new landlord when it reopens.

Malcolm Fulton, 44, who jointly owns the pub with his brother Keith, said: “It needed a new image. We are going to start afresh.

“We are aiming to open Padua’s again on the weekend of April 23.”

The pub was previously run by the Mitchell family, but Nikki Mitchell was last year told by Allerdale Council that it had to stop serving alcohol at 2am not 3am and close by 2.30am rather than 3.30am on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Mr Mitchell attempted to get the decision overturned by West Cumbria magistrates, who upheld the original decision.

Action had been taken by licensing chiefs after a party was attended by a number of 15-year-olds.

Licensing chiefs ordered that no one aged under 18 should be allowed in the pub after 9pm, and those inside before that time should be accompanied by an adult.
