The Coach and Horses in Harrogate is set to reopen under new owners Provenance Inns and Hotels.
Provenance Inns, which also owns the West Park Hotel on the same street, plans to refurbish the historic pub before it reopens.
It is unclear when the Coach and Horses will open but the new owners said in a statement today it will create more than 50 jobs.
Karen French, operations director for Provenance Inns and Hotels 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.
“Not only will this opportunity create more than 50 new jobs, but 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 news comes almost a year since Harrogate Borough Council granted Samantha Nelson a new alcohol licence.
Previous landlord John Nelson, Ms Nelson’s father, lost the licence when police found customers drinking outside and not observing social distancing rules during the weekend of May 30, 2020.
Nelson is well-known in the Harrogate area — he was landlord for 33 years and raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for local charities.
