A Tynemouth tea room’s bid to serve alcohol to customers is set to be decided by the council next week.

Tynemouth 61 on Front Street, has applied to North Tyneside Council for a licence to supply alcohol for consumption on the premises every day between 10.30am and 8pm.

The premises is a “long-established” seven-bedroom Georgian guest house that includes a tea room and garden which are open to the general public to enjoy refreshments.

The tea room doubles up as a breakfast room for guests staying at the property and only opens after breakfast service has finished.

An application form said: “Similarly, as our main business is a guest house, the tea room would not be open beyond early evening.”

The business said that it would continue as a tea room, but wanted to be able to offer customers alcohol alongside food..

However, the council received one objection from a resident concerned about noise nuisance.

They wrote: “”It all sounds very nice but selling bottles of champagne or prosseco in the outdoor area in the summer will add to the noise level at weekends.”

The business said that it would continue as a tea room, but wanted to be able to offer customers alcohol alongside food.

Tynemouth 61 plans to continue as a tea room and said that it doesn’t want to detract from being a family friendly destination.

The form added: ” We do not anticipate being a place to visit for drinks only as there are plenty of other establishments in the area offering this and we do not want to detract from the main focus of the business as a traditional family-friendly tea room.”

The licensing committee is set to decide on the proposals on Tuesday.
