Seven banned from Caerphilly County pubs in less than a month


Seven people have been banned from pubs in Caerphilly, Bargoed and Blackwood since August 1 due to the Pub Watch Online scheme.

Nine pubs in Caerphilly and seven in Blackwood and Bargoed are part of the scheme that means offending in one pub could see culprits banned from other establishments in the area.

Among those banned are a 46-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman from Ystrad Mynach who assaulted door staff at the Kings Arms in Caerphilly on August 1, leading to a five year ban each.

Three men from Bargoed were also banned for five years each for assaulting a member of staff at Blisters nightclub in Bargoed on August 10.

Night Time Economy Officer, PC Adam Lang said: “The majority of the popular pubs in Caerphilly are currently signed up to Pub Watch. People need to take note, that if you misbehave in one, your information will be shared with Gwent Police and other pubs and you could receive a ban varying from one month to life.

“Behaviour like this will not be tolerated in these pubs and people who act in this manner will be punished for their actions. We currently have 18 people banned from pubs across Caerphilly, Blackwood and Bargoed – and two new pubs have joined the scheme this month.”
