A BAR in Christchurch is set to close after nine months of operation.

Tom’s Bar was granted a licence to operate from the former Roberta store in High Street in June last year but has been forced to close the business less than a year later.

Concerns were raised by residents at the time about the impact noise and 1am closing times could have on people living directly above the bar.

The managing director of the business Tom Owen has provided mobile hospitality services since 2014.

Tom’s Bar operates the Mobile Bar Service at Sopley Mill near Winkton and Lulworth Castle in Wareham. With the closure of his bar, it is assumed that Tom will continue with these services.

Following its announced closure, Tom’s Bar has already taken down its Facebook and Instagram social media pages.

Tom Owen was approached for comment but declined.
