It seems the problems arose after the takeover in 2018 and the new owners didn’t read the small print of the licensing application, and, the licensee is never on-site, so it’s gone to shit.
It might lose its license, or more than likely, it will get a rebrand again and change its licensing conditions.
I can’t say I have ever been in, it was too far up its own rectum even for me.
