Old Spring Well to be renamed Curious Cow in luxury revamp
Last updated Jan 13, 2022

A popular family pub on the outskirts of Harrogate is set to get a luxury makeover.

The Old Spring Well, at Killinghall, will be rebranded as the Curious Cow and will reopen as part of the Revere Pub Company, which is the premium arm of Marston’s.

Marston’s has yet to provide further details of the refurbishment, but a spokeswoman from the pub company confirmed the move.

She said:

“The Curious Cow will be reopening as part of Revere which is the premium arm of Marston’s Pubs.”

A recruitment drive for chefs and bar and waiting staff is currently taking place, with the job advert from Revere stating:

“Our premium food and drink offering is at the heart of each experience with Josper charcoal-cooked steaks, crisp wood fired pizzas and hearty Sunday roasts always being part of the delicious seasonally changing menu.”

The Foundry Project, in Harrogate, is also part of the Revere group, however the spokeswoman said this obviously operated more like a city centre bar than a pub, despite falling under the same brand.

A licensing application has been submitted to change the operating hours of the pub, which is currently still open, including until 1am on a Friday and Saturday.

The Old Spring Well was built on the site of the Travellers Rest pub, which was demolished about 10 years ago.
