The Mailbox, in Circular Road, Douglas, could be set to re-open.
Grape and Grain Limited, based in Parsonage Glebe, in St John’s, has announced that it will apply to the licensing court sitting on June 13 for the transfer of the alcohol licence from Rivertown Limited.
In addition, the company will apply to vary one of the terms of the licence, to allow under 16s to be on the premises until 10pm or 10.15pm, if finishing a substantial meal. Last November, we reported that the Mailbox restaurant and deli, situated in Capital House had closed.
At that time, a statement from the board of directors of Rivertown Limited was issued, which said that ‘the directors were left with no alternative but to make arrangements for the company to cease trading forthwith’.
