Tudor Rose Night Club

Two nightclubs with a history of violent crime have been shut by Ealing council.

The notorious crime hot spots in Southall and Acton have had their trading licences revoked this month following police concerns for public safety.

Police initiated an application to close The Tudor Rose – which had at one point wanted to open until 6.30am – after a long history of serious assaults being committed at or near the venue, including stabbings, glassings, firearms incidents and physical assaults.

At one stage the club was asked to voluntarily close by police officers who had received warning of a planned firebomb attack

Councillor Ranjit Dheer, cabinet member for community services and safety said: “While the council and the police work hard to assist businesses improve their performance before we consider harsher measures, at some point enough is enough.

“In both these cases, the constant stream of violent and illegal incidents , not to mention the regular licence breaches, meant there was no option other than to revoke their licences.”

Ealing Council’s Licensing Sub-Committee decided on Friday, June 13 to revoke the licence of The Tudor Rose at 68 The Green in Southall, having initially suspended its licence on an interim basis in late May.

The police have also responded to numerous reports of fighting, knife crime, drug dealing and general disorderly behaviour. At least two men were stabbed multiple times in the vicinity of the nightclub on a single weekend as well as hundreds of recorded breaches of last entry/re-entry requirements .

The Tune Inn, now called Pinx, at 48 High Street in Acton had appealed against the council decision in March last year to revoke its licence, but this was turned down at Ealing Magistrates’ Court on 28 May.

Both venues now cannot open, though there is a possibility they may further appeal the decision through higher courts.

The Tune Inn had its appeal against the licence revocation turned down as the police and council were concerned that on-going issues would not be addressed by the club.

Police initially applied after a string of drunken assaults, thefts and other crimes took place at the club. Even with continued support from police and council licencing officers when the club was allowed to continue trading during the appeal process, the premises remained a hotspot of illegal and antisocial activity.
