New signs in the windows of the Coach & Horses pub in Harrogate have indicated it will be reopening in the near future.
On Friday, Harrogate Borough Council approved the new owner’s plans to refurbish the premises.
Provenance Inns, which owns West Park Hotel on the same street, took over the pub in October last year.
It has been closed since May 2020 after the previous landlord John Nelson had his licence revoked for breaching covid rules.
Provenance will revamp the bar and kitchen area and reinstate the corner entrance.
It will also convert the first floor into a restaurant area along with staff accommodation and office space.
Anthony Blundell, commercial manager at Provenance Inns, told the Stray Ferret that the company wanted to maintain the Coach and Horses as a “traditional pub”.
“The idea is to refurbish what is already there.
“We see it as the last traditional pub in Harrogate. We know from our guests how well it was respected.”
