Another great success in the Liquor Licensing courts today as we provided plans and expert evidence to help secure a Liquor Licence for yet another local restaurant. We'll wait until the clients post the news themselves before revealing the business.

This sees the conclusion of this current season of Liquor Licensing in the NI courts and we've been incredibly busy helping clients across the province secure their Liquor Licenses, with 100% success rate!

So if you're enjoying a glass of wine or two with your meal this weekend there's a fair chance you have #9yards to thank! You're welcome 🥂😎
