Bosses at a Norfolk brewery hoping to open a bar have responded to concerns from neighbours about the possible impacts of noise on a 'quiet' village.

East Norfolk Cider, an award-winning brewery based in Scratby, is seeking permission to open a tap room in neighbouring Ormesby St Margaret.

The bar would be called The Butcher's Tap Room and showcase the brewery's own cider and apple juice, as well as selling a selection of local ales, spirits and wine, and hot drinks and snacks.

The proposed location is on Wapping in a former estate agents, Town and Country, which closed down in September last year.

The plans are facing objections from some 14 residents who have raised concerns about the potential impacts of noise from the bar.

One neighbour said: "The addition of what, in essence, is a public house with tables outside will inevitably result in noise nuisance in a quiet lane."

Another person said the village already has a pub where people can meet and have a drink with friends.

The owners of the brewery have attempted to address the concerns and confirmed that the tap room would open from 12pm to 8pm Sunday to Wednesday and 12pm to 9pm Thursday to Saturday.

They also said the bar would be aimed at the older population and that the risk of anti-social behaviour is "minimal".

A document supporting the application highlighted the potential social benefits to the bar and indicated there would be benches at the front of the building to allow people to sit outside.

East Norfolk Cider have operated from their brewery in Scratby for 14 years.

A decision on the bid, which has been submitted to Great Yarmouth Borough Council, is expected by July 2.
