Local councillors have granted a 24-hour booze licence to Haigh Hall, a new multi-million pound hotel development by Contessa Hotels. 

The hotel, which is currently undergoing a £6m restoration process, has now been given the green light to serve alcohol in its bar, ballroom bar and ground floor restaurant when it opens next year.

Haigh Hall will also serve booze on its rooftop terrace and ceremony room on the third floor.

Councillors imposed a series of conditions including a restriction on the use of an outdoor area between 11pm and 7am and a ‘challenge 25’ policy will have to be put in place.

Staff will be expected to regularly monitor noise levels “where it is likely to cause disturbance to local residents.”

The restoration of Haigh Hall will see the 19th century hall transformed into a 30-bed boutique hotel and spa after planning permission was granted last year.

Speaking in June, Craig Baker, director of ContessaHotels, said: “We are really pleased to be investing in Haigh Hall and excited to get the project moving.

“This time has been integral for planning and development and some work has already started in certain rooms.”
