It falls in a ‘cumulative impact zone’ meaning that Brighton and Hove City Council restricts the number of licensed venues in the area.

Residents group the North Laine Community Association complained about the prospect of another licensed venue, as they claim it will add to anti-social behaviour.

The Council’s Licensing Department said: “The applicants point to the modest nature of the application and their pre-consultation with responsible authorities and conditions they have agreed with the police.

“The panel has considered very carefully the concerns of local residents and recognise the sensitivities of this residential area.”

After a debate, it was decided that a maximum of ten guests can sit in the outdoor area – which will close at 7:30pm.

The new restaurant is owned by Laurence Hill, manager of Brighton seafront pub the Fortune of War.
