FIGHTING, drug dealing and serving children are some of the activities at this notorious Brentford pub which have made neighbours scared to leave their homes.
But now the Albany Arms has had its opening hours cut by the council's licensing panel, is this going to be enough to change the pub for the better?
Landlord Kevin Callanan had his license reviewed on Monday night after years of disregarding police warnings over illegal activities.
In a letter put to the panel who decided the pub's fate, neighbour of the Albany Road pub, Nicholas Wright, said: "Myself and other residents have been frightened by the sheer amount of fighting and the deeply unfortunate levels of violence against police. It is impossible not to point out the bad reputation of this pub."
Neighbours have complained in particular about dance music nights held on Saturdays which "attracted a high risk customer base" and left locals scared to leave their homes.
Before Monday night's review, the pub, which is owned by Enterpise Inns, was allowed to open until 1am on Friday and Saturday nights, until 12.30am Monday to Thursday and until midnight on Sundays.
After reading statements from police, locals and noise pollution control, the council panel decided to restrict the pub's opening hours to close at 11.30pm on Friday and Saturday, 11pm on Monday to Thursday and 11pm on Sundays.
Lindsay Cornock, licensing officer at Hounslow police, said in a statement to the panel: "In my opinion in the short period Mr Callanan has been in charge of the premises he has done little if anything at all, to promote the licensing objectives, especially the Crime and Disorder.
"Police have been called to the premises to restore order after large scale fights – including knives. Mr Callanan is allowing known gang members to frequent the premises and making no effort to stop them from entering the premises or eject them."
In June last year, a fight broke out between around 15 and people and on June 21 another larger fight ensued, involving the "entire pub", resulting in assaults and a knife being recovered.
Inspector Steve Edwards from Hounslow Police said the "straw that broke the camels back was when licensing officers turned up and there were strippers working there, which they don't have a license for and unlicensed door men and bar staff."
