Efforts to find a new tenant for historic Haworth pub the Black Bull moved forward with an open day.
Enterprise Inns, which own the Main Street pub, were pleased with the response from potential licensees.
Several people went along to look around and chat.
A spokesman said: “A number of parties expressed an interest. We are actively pursuing these leads and aim for a smooth transition.”
Thursday’s recruitment day followed concern that the Black Bull – the haunt of Branwell Brontë – could close.
