An application to extend a pub’s opening hours to up to 16 hours a day was kicked out last week by the Midlothian Licensing Board.

The Polton Inn in Lasswade planned to open two hours earlier at 9am Monday to Saturday, but this was rejected by councillors sitting on the board.

While the pub’s opening hours will remain the same Monday to Saturday, it will open 11am to midnight on a Sunday, an increase of four and a half hours.
