New patio at Fort Pub promises no loud music
Township council approved a new patio for the Fort Pub whose manager promised there would be no loud music to disturb Bedford Landing neighbours.
On July 23, council endorsed the pub’s application to build a licensed patio on the southwest side of the building, adjacent to the parking lot which faces the Bedford Landing community at Glover Road and Billy Brown Road.
The pub, located at 9273 Glover Rd., is in the Riverside Centre, the southern part of which was demolished to accommodate a public plaza.
A Bedford Landing resident told council she was concerned about noise coming from the pub’s outdoor area, which will have seating for 47 patrons.
General manager Blair Wells said that most of the clientele will be in the 40 to 50 age group.
There will be no entertainment on the patio; the DJ will be inside the pub.
“There will be speakers for our house music but it will be kept low,” he assured.
Even though it is already a provincial requirement, a smoking ban on the patio was added to the Township’s list of conditions and requirements.
