Pubs

 

A new cafe bar is to open at the former 'Walrus & Carpenter' site on Oxford Street in Harrogate. Starling Independent Beer & Coffee House will serve real ales, craft beers, coffee and pizza. Owner Simon Midgley, has worked at Market Town Taverns and was commercial director at Ossett Brewery. It is due to open in March.

 

The Castle Vaults, Knaresborough (Enterprise) has closed.

The Alexandra, Harrogate is offering discount through the use of the Nicholson’s smartphone app.

 

In Ripon, Wilfrids has closed permanently, a brave attempt by Nidderdale Inns to bring something a little different to the cathedral city. It is to become yet another cafe. Also in Ripon the lady who owned the Turks Head, has sadly died and the future of the pub is unknown, it has been closed for sometime but there were expectations that it would eventually reopen.

 

Further north The Queens Head in Kirkby Malzeard has reopened, but its future under Enterprise Inns looks uncertain. If it closes permanently this would leave the former two pub village pub-less. The closed Henry Jenkins pub in the village is scheduled for demolition, despite stiff opposition from local residents.
