Carlisle delicatessen bids for alcohol licence

The owner of a Carlisle deli has applied for a premises licence so he can sell beer and wine.

Mike Hope, of Bocata at the end of Lowther Arcade, sells sandwiches and deli items during the day but wants to sell alcohol.

He has applied to Carlisle City Council for a licence to play recorded music and sell drink between 8am to 3am, seven nights a week.

He said: “I’ve applied for a premises licence to sell alcohol and I have to wait about a month to see how that goes.”

Mr Hope, who many years ago ran Le Gall on Devonshire Street, says he hopes to open in the evenings but will make firm plans on what wine and beer he will sell, and which nights he will open, when his licence is approved.

He opened Bocata in August.

Have your say

Good luck to him. Anyone with the vision and resilience to run a small business in the current should be applauded and get all the help the authorities can possibly give them,

I was most impressed by Bocata, and a glass of good wine or bubbly would be aperfect enhancement, and attract an even more varied public.
