The owner and general manager of Unicorn Hotel next door had raised concerns about the potential for noise disturbances.

But the council's licensing sub-committee approved the application after a hearing on July 7.

"The sub-committee received three objections to the application and considered all of the written representations ahead of the hearing and the issues raised," the decision notice reads.
