Brentwood micropub set for expansion

A micro pub in Brentwood has agreed conditions to ensure it does not become a problem for neighbours as part of being given permission to expand into a next door property.

Mason Nathaniel, who has run the Peasants Revolt in Kings Road since it opened in December 2021 has been given permission to expand into the empty adjoining premises along with a extension to the opening hours.

It means it can open until 11.30pm Sunday to Wednesday and midnight Thursday to Saturday. However, Brentwood Borough Council environmental officers have said noise from the micropub must not impact residents living in surrounding residential properties. Mr Nathaniel has agreed a noise management policy.

Chris Breen, environmental officer at Brentwood Borough Council told a licensing committee meeting on August 8: “We felt that the conditions that were submitted would be proportionate to the risk of the premises with the increased footfall and a larger surface area for clientele to enjoy.

“In adding a condition on a noise limit to be agreed by environmental health we’ll be able to visit Mr Nathaniel and work with him to agree a noise level that will be stuck to to ensure that the noise doesn’t become a problem for other premises.”

Mr Nathaniel said he opened the micropub to provide “a new characterful place for existing locals and young professionals drawn to the area by the new Elizabeth line to enjoy”.
