A chef will go on trial next year following an alleged stabbing at a Welshpool pub.

Jed Robertson, of High Road, South Shields near Newcastle, denied two charges of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, and unlawful wounding, both against Zak Tipton on May 22, this year.

It follows an incident at The Raven Inn in Raven Square, which saw the pub closed for the rest of the day.

At Mold Crown Court, on Tuesday, June 21, the 27-year-old also pleaded guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm to the pub's owner David Laycock on the same day.

A five-day trial date has been set for February 13, next year, at Mold Crown Court and Robertson was granted conditional bail.
