A Lowestoft nightclub will open its doors once more this weekend after it closed temporarily following a review of its licence.

Mossy's closed after an application for a "summary review of a premises licence" was made by Suffolk Constabulary, with notices put up at the venue on April 11.

But at a confidential, behind-closed-doors meeting on Wednesday, May 3, East Suffolk Council's licensing sub-committee recommended "modification of conditions" on the premises licence for The Harbour Inn (Mossy’s), Royal Thoroughfare, Lowestoft.

It comes as police investigations continue after a man was injured following an assault close to the nightspot on Royal Thoroughfare on April 8.

One man was arrested on suspicion of assault causing actual bodily harm, with another man later arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.

With both men on bail until June 26, it later emerged that the incident involved an alleged "assault by door staff."

After this week's meeting, an East Suffolk Council spokesman said: "The venue is permitted to remain open subject to modification of conditions on the licence.

"The licence holder and applicant have the right to appeal."

With management at Mossy's - which is located within the The Harbour Inn in Lowestoft, and is part of Moss and co hospitality - "working closely with the police and council" and "employing a brand new door supervisors team", they said it "was an extremely unfortunate situation out of our control."

Adam Vass, operations manager at Moss and co trading, said: "We accept the council's recommendations on the licence.

"We have a completely brand new door staff team going in as of this Friday - a well renowned team who will be doing the doors for us.

"It has been definitely been a worrying time, and a learning curve for us all, but it is one we can now move on from with the recommendations from the council being put in place."

With the nightspot hosting "Mossys reopening party" this Friday, May 5 a "huge reunion weekend" is offered with 'The Friday Clique' as doors open from 10pm.

A special bank holiday Sunday event is also planned, with further announcements on its Facebook page.
