An Indian restaurant and bar on Bradford Road in Pudsey has successfully gained a licence to sell alcohol until 2am, despite local opposition.
Papaya is based at the former The Farmers pub on Bradford Road.
Local residents had been worried about late-night noise, and Calverley and Farsley Councillors Andrew and Amanda Carter and Rod Wood argued that the building and car park were too close to residents’ homes to allow a licence until 2am.

But at this week’s licensing sub-committee meeting, Papaya bosses successfully argued that the venue wasn’t a pub, but a restaurant, that noise would be monitored and disruption kept to a minimum.
