A pub in Keighley town centre is gearing up to re-open next week following a £300,000 refurbishment.
The Lord Rodney closed last month, with its owner - the Keighley brewery Timothy Taylor's - announcing plans for a major revamp.
The pub, on Church Green at the end of North Street, is due to reopen on Yorkshire Day (1st August) as Taylor's On The Green.
Timothy Taylor's was founded back in 1858 and moved to its current site at Knowle Spring in 1863, and the company says aligning a pub in the heart of Keighley more closely with the brewery will enable patrons to sample a wide range of Taylor's beers but also learn more about the firm's history and heritage.
The venue has had a new bar, toilets, branding and decoration along with a revamped heated outside seating area.
Design work has been done by Skipton-based Bowman Riley, with Keighley building firm RN Wooler working on the project too.
Paul Turner, Estate Operations Director commented: "We are really excited to be investing in this prominent outlet in the town centre and look forward to welcoming locals and visitors to the revamped Taylor’s on the Green.
"We believe it will be a significant contribution to the already improving leisure offer in the town. The good train links and presence of the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway will make it easy for Timothy Taylor’s fans to visit."
