A popular Blackstock Road boozer was ordered to close on Wednesday because of an ongoing licensing dispute.
Earlier on this month The Gunners Pub was the subject of a secretive licensing sub committee meeting, which the press was barred from attending.
The Gazette understands the pub landlord, Andy Hoyle, was applying for a premise license transfer and a new premise supervisor.
But it seems both these applications were rejected at the meeting on August 7.

What’s more, the pub does not currently have a supervisor, which is why it has been temporarily ordered to close.
At the beginning of the month Mr Hoyle said he ran an “iconic pub” and would fight for its future.
