Ma Miller’s keeps its clothes on

The controversy proved too much for a plan to convert a historic Langford Pub into the West Shore’s only strip club.

The controversy proved too much for a plan to convert a historic Langford Pub into the West Shore’s only strip club.

On Monday, the operator of Ma Miller’s Pub told the Gazette that he had been evicted from the building.

Dale Stephenson was less than halfway into a four-year lease to run the pub. The building’s owner, Tony Piga, did not return calls asking for comment.

Stephenson cited poor sales and the need for new clientele as reasons to bring exotic entertainment into the West Shore on a regular basis.

However, the plan was met with outrage by neighbours of the pub, many of whom signed online petitions to oppose the strip club.

Stephenson chose not to comment on whether he would pursue legal action to try and reclaim some of the costs he incurred before being evicted.

He did say he would “definitely not” ever get back into running a pub.
