The West Park pub has rebranded as the Sleigh and Reindeers for Christmas.

The Coach & Horses in Harrogate has revealed plans to expand its bar.

Provenance Inns bought the pub on West Park in 2021 and extensively refurbished it.

But the new, much smaller bar has met with a mixed reaction.

Provenance Inns has now applied for a variation of its premises licence to relocate the bar. A notice advertising the move has been posted in the pub window.

Anthony Blundell, head of business development at Provenance Inns, which bought the site in 2021, told the Stray Ferret:

“The application is for moving the bar.

“It is in response to the feedback we’ve received from our guests, since our remodel, to have a much larger bar that our guests can sit or stand at.”

Mr Blundell added the company had also applied for another bar in the upstairs dining room, adding:

“[This will be to] service dinners and make it even more appealing for private parties.”

The Coach and Horses has rebranded as the Sleigh and Reindeers over the festive period.
