A VILLAGE pub which closed this month will reopen tomorrow.

The Hare and Hounds, in Skipton Old Road, has been closed since David and Cheryl Crabtree terminated their lease two weeks ago.

But Andrew Duxbury, who runs the Cross Gaits Inn, Blacko, is to take control on a temporary basis.

Food will be available from later this week.

A spokesman for owners Marston’s Pub Company said: “The Hare and Hounds will be reopened for people in Foulridge to enjoy as soon as possible, as we know how important it is to people here.”
