Provenance Inns and Hotels, the owners of the West Park Hotel, have acquired The Coach and Horses in Harrogate.
The Coach and Horses, which faces West Park Stray, has not reopened since it closed due to Covid.
But Provenance Inns are hoping to inject a new lease of life into the iconic Harrogate pub.
Karen French, Operations Director for the group, said:
“We are delighted that we could take on such a fantastic building and have the opportunity to bring The Coach and Horses back to life! It’s a very exciting time for us all.
“We are currently agreeing a plan for refurbishment and reopening and we will share dates and further details as soon as we possibly can.”
The reopening of the pub will create 50 new jobs for the Harrogate area.
“We plan to work with local groups and the community, to be able to offer something that’s accessible to everyone.
“We are pleased that we will be the new custodians of The Coach and Horses, and that we are able to retain the family values of the pub.”
The Award-winning Provenance Inns and Hotels group currently operates 7 sites across North Yorkshire, including The West Park Hotel.
