Q: I have been doing hog roasts and late night barbecues in my beer garden but the Licensing Officer has told me to stop until I have applied to vary my licence. I am already permitted late night refreshment so I do not understand why?
A: I do not know the detail but I suspect it is because your authorisation for late night refreshment after 11:00pm is restricted to the pub building and not outside. You need to be authorised where the hot food is provided, not necessarily where it is cooked. Subject to any noise issues, you may be able to do this with a minor variation
