Home Bargains café in Livingston named busiest in the entire country, council told Google Maps

A Home Bargains café in West Lothian is the busiest and best performing in the UK, a council has been told.

An agent, Richard Taylor, revealed the café’s high performance at a meeting of West Lothian Council’s Licensing Board on Friday morning.

Local councillors formalised the Livingston eatery’s license after it had been missed out of the wording in earlier applications.

Councillor Alison Adamson said that “being top in the UK for Livingston is something we should celebrate.”

The board also accepted an application from Cooper’s Bar and Lounge in Bathgate to open earlier on Sundays, allowing management to appropriately accommodate football fans.

Cooper’s will now be able to open at 11am on Sundays to meet high demand around televised sporting events – which usually begin at noon. 

Councillor Stuart Borrowman described it as a “very decent local pub”, adding: “In 15 years as a local councillor I’ve never had a complaint of any sort.

“It’s a perfectly decent local pub and I have no difficulty with the amendment being sought.”

Councillors also granted a variation to the licence for the Volunteer Arms in Uphall, allowing it to permit entry of children and youngsters with adults for meals or when attending functions.
