The Punch Bowl in Mayfair, the pub owned by Guy Ritchie, has had various restrictions imposed on it by the local council following a court hearing.

After formal complaints from local residents, City of Westminster Council has prevented customers drinking outside the pub after 8pm, restricted smoking to a certain area and forced staff to make hourly checks for glasses and litter.

The council arranged the hearing yesterday after receiving a 23-page application from local residents wanting to get the pub’s licence reviewed and following 70 complaints.
