TWO restaurants in Chippenham and Pewsey have had licenses suspended due to illegal working taking place on the premises.

The Tale of Spice in North Street, Pewsey and Tale of Spice in Malmesbury Road in Chippenham were reviewed by Immigration Enforcement

Cllr Laura Mayes, Cabinet Member for Public Protection, said:

“The suspension of these licences of the two restaurants will likely result in a loss of trade for them and we hope it sends a clear message that such matters aren’t acceptable.”

Wiltshire Council’s Northern and Eastern Area Licensing Sub-Committees made the decisions at their recent respective meetings.

The suspension of the licenses for both restaurants relates to the selling of alcohol on the premises. The restaurants have a right to appeal.

The grounds for the review at Tale of Spice, 9 North Street, Pewsey, included a visit to the premises on September 20 2019, when seven people were found to be working illegally.

The licensing committee decided to remove both supervisors and suspend the licence for three months.
