Pembrokeshire pub fined £1000 for serving pints

A Pembrokeshire public house has been issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £1,000 for breaching coronavirus regulations.

Staff at the Drovers Arms in Puncheston were seen by Pembrokeshire COVID Enforcement Officers and Dyfed-Powys Police Officers to have been supplying alcohol and remaining open when prohibited under Welsh Government regulations on the 4th December 2020.

The pub was found to be serving alcohol after 6pm. Seven people were reported to be on the premises.

The Fixed Penalty Notice was issued on 14th December 2020 by Pembrokeshire County Council.

The licensee may discharge liability to conviction for the offence if the penalty is paid within 28 days.

Councillor Cris Tomos, the Pembrokeshire County Council Cabinet Member for Public Protection, said:  “We’d like to thank the vast majority of Pembrokeshire businesses who are following the Regulations and playing their part in helping to prevent the spread of coronavirus across the county.

“We understand that this is a very challenging time for hospitality and our preference is always to engage and educate rather than enforce.”
