The Great Eastern Pub on Newtownards Road is back in business
An east Belfast pub is back in business after it was granted a renewal of its liquor licence yesterday.
The bar on the Newtownards Road was one of four businesses forced to close recently after it emerged that they had been trading without a valid permit.
Following the renewal, a spokesman for Pubs Of Ulster wrote on Twitter: "The Great Eastern Pub granted liquor licence after failure to renew – They can now open and sell alcohol".
The internationally famous Crown Bar in Great Victoria Street reopened on Thursday, after being closed for a week, after an "administrative oversight" saw its licence expire.
Meanwhile, the Cock and Hen in Lord Street and The Royal in Sandy Row are expected to reopen next week.
