Jhini Mukherjee, Licensing Officer, introduced the application, which sought a new premises licence for Ten Restaurant, 110 Victoria Road, Ruislip. The application requested authorisation for the sale of alcohol, regulated entertainment including live and recorded music, and late-night refreshment for the hours as set out in the report.


The officer confirmed that eight representations had been received; six of which were from local residents, one from Ward Councillor Michael Markham, and one from the Licensing Authority.


It was recommended that the Sub-Committee grant the application, though with due consideration of conditions and hours of operation.




The applicant was represented by Mr Panchal of Personal Licensing Courses, and Mr Culaj, Manager of the premises.


The applicant confirmed that the premises was seeking to be a family restaurant serving sit-down meals and accompanying alcohol only, not a bar or nightclub. Mr Culaj was an experienced premises manager who had worked at various premises and who fully understood the four licensing objectives.


Actions had been taken to address concerns over noise/disturbance and public nuisance, including reducing the hours in which live music was performed and the installation of sound proofing, alongside dialogue with the Council’s ASBET and Licensing teams regarding appropriate sound and decibel levels. Such actions would continue, including the installation of a noise limiter and consultation with local residents.


In answer to questions, the Sub-Committee was informed that circa eight properties were located above the premises, though the applicant had not yet contacted residents to discuss their concerns. Additionally, it was confirmed that the off sale of alcohol was sought only to allow diners to take unfinished wine with them upon leaving. Last orders for food and alcohol would be at 0030, and a dispersal policy would be in place to ensure patrons left in a quiet and orderly fashion.


Regarding dispersal, taxi numbers would be available for patrons to call and then wait inside for arrival, to prevent them from congregating outside. Drunk patrons would be refused service and asked to leave, while signs would be in place asking patrons to remain quiet and respectful of residents.


It was accepted that noise complaints had been received while renovation work had been undertaken, and for this the applicant apologised. On the matter of refuse management and complaints of uncollected refuse attracting vermin, a waste management policy was now in place, agreed with the Council. The number of bins had been increased to accommodate the higher amount of refuse, and complaints had been registered with the collection service regarding missed collections. If there were further issues with the service, an alternate provider would be sought.


Parking at the rear of the site was recognised as an issue. The site was small and often used by non-residents or non-patrons, resulting in blocked staff or resident vehicles. A 24hour telephone number could be made available to residents to call, should they find their cars blocked.
