Mo’s to remain in Langley, owner says

Maureen Cooke, owner-operator of Mo’s Pub and Eatery in Langley, said she has no plans to move her business out of Langley.

Rumors swirled after she reportedly looked into moving to the building last used for Harold’s Gay 90’s Pizza. The yellow building, next to the Texaco station on Highway 525, has its windows boarded up. Cooke said the cost, estimated between $1.3 million and $1.5 million, was too high to move and renovate the building for her popular restaurant and bar.

“We have no plans to move out of Langley at the moment,” Cooke said.

In recent months, Cooke has grown frustrated with neighbors who file noise complaints with Langley City Hall and claim she has been unneighborly with crowd noise outside the establishment. Rules were put in place to govern how many times per year a business next to a residential area could have live, amplified music.

She said that she and husband Bob Trenchard, the co-owner, are trying to find a buyer for the property and the pub because she is tired of arguing with the residents.
