Wisbech caf� granted licence to sell alcohol alongside its meals
A WISBECH caf� will be able to sell alcohol alongside its meals after convincing police it would create no further disorder in the town.
Britannia Caf� in Wisbech’s Blackfriars Road was granted a license at Fenland District Council’s licensing committee hearing on Thursday subject to six recommendations by police.
Owner Ibrahim Sarica and his staff can only supply alcohol alongside a meal to prevent people from attending the premises to buy drink only.
Staff will also be trained in the supply of alcohol, a refusal book will be kept, a CCTV system will be installed, Mr Sarica or an authorised representative will attend Pubwatch meetings and drink must only be sold on the shop floor.
Sgt David Bax had originally objected to the caf�’s wishes of selling alcohol in what he believed would be “a similar way to that of a public house” due to fears it “could lead to further disorder” in the town.

However, after officers attended the premises at the end of July they established that owner Ibrahim Sarica only wished to sell alcohol to simply “supplement his business”.
