Fish Boss Inglewood

2/882 Beaufort Street, Inglewood 

Fish Boss have opened their new premises this year in Inglewood – right next to General Public in what has become a revitalised food & beverage precinct of Inglewood. Jamie Goddard engaged Canford back in January to assist with acquiring a restaurant liquor licence and two extended trading permits.

Fish Boss has been a long standing name within the food & beverage industry. Having been a popular food-truck option at the Inglewood night markets over the last few years, it seems only a natural progression that they now have their own premises along Beaufort Street.

In assisting Fish Boss, the main issue that arose from acquiring the desired trading conditions was around their shared toilets. 882 Beaufort Street is a shared building between multiple retail / food & beverage outlets. As such, the toilets are also shared. Given the other premises using these facilities, and the timing of their openings being earlier than Fish Boss, the initial capacity condition imposed on the liquor licence we obtained for them was set at 30.

Canford advised a way forward for the client’s desired capacity of 80  through re-configuring their shared toilet situation. With the consent of the landlord and the adjoining tenants, Fish Boss carried out the necessary works. Upon completion, we were engaged later in the year to lodge an alteration/redefinition application and an add/vary application. These applications were to (1) re-define the licensed area to include a larger alfresco and (2) to vary the capacity condition set out on their licence.

With the new shared toilet configuration, Fish Boss have now achieved their desired capacity. Canford then worked swiftly to lodge both applications and turnaround an approval.

Best of luck to Jamie and the Fish Boss team. Go down to 2/882 Beaufort Street, Inglewood if you’re in the area!
