How the pub will look.

The Old Spring Well in Killinghall will reopen as The Curious Cow of Harrogate on April 8 after undergoing a £650,000 refurbishment.

The Revere Pub Company, which is the premium arm of Marston’s, has promised a ‘brand-new premium pub, food and drink experience’, with the creation of 40 jobs.

The Stray Ferret revealed last month the pub, which was built on the site of the former Travellers Rest, was being taken up-market.

The owners have now provided an opening date and further details of the planned changes.

It said in a press release today:

“The venue will be newly reimagined with country chic inspired interiors and stripped back features, including oak flooring, open fires and contemporary finishes.

“Alongside a welcoming interior and cosy nooks, there is also an outside area to make the most of the warmer months.”

Food will consist of “an assortment of contemporary dishes alongside a variety of pub classics”, plus pizzas, steaks and other options, including Sunday roasts.

Michael Baravelli, general manager at The Curious Cow of Harrogate, said:

“We can’t wait to throw open the doors and welcome guests in to explore what we’ve created here.

“Providing quality and premium experiences that keep people coming back time and time again is so important to us, and we are looking forward to creating a beautiful space where the community can escape, switch off and enjoy what we have to offer.”
