Falmouth town councillors have backed a bid by Falmouth’s new vegan cafe bar, Wildebeest, to sell alcohol and provide recorded music at the premises in Arwenack Street.

The application to Cornwall Council is seeking the licence for between 8am and 11pm, daily, except on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve when it is requested until 1am.

Members of Falmouth’s licensing sub-committee unanimously supported the application when it went before them on Monday.
