The owners of a Bucks country pub have applied for a licence to serve alcohol at the venue from 9:30am each day.

The White Hart Inn at Three Households, Chalfont St Giles, will have its opening hours changed if a new licensing application to Buckinghamshire Council is approved.

The plans state that the pub’s licence for the sale of alcohol would be until midnight during the week and until 1am on Friday and Saturday nights.

The Chef & Brewer chain which runs the hotel and pub says that it currently opens until 11pm for most of the week apart from Sundays when it shuts at 10:30pm.

Greene King – which owns Chef & Brewer – said in its application that a proof of age scheme will remain in place.

It also adds: “Persons under the age of 18 shall not be admitted to, or permitted to remain on, the premises after 10pm (11pm in the dining room).”
