A KEIGHLEY pub has new faces at the helm.

Stephen Roberts and business partner John Durkin have taken over the leaseholder reins at the Three Horses, in Fell Lane.

Since taking on the pub in the summer, they have carried out a major refurbishment of the premises – including a new kitchen and toilets and a re-styling of the bar area.

About 15 full and part-time jobs have been created.

And they have pledged support to Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice Manorlands.

Fundraising events already held have included a fun day and Bonfire Night celebrations.

More than £1,100 has been handed over to the hospice.

“We want to make the Three Horses a real community pub with a family feel,” said Stephen, 33.

“We’re started serving food, so people can enjoy a meal as well as a drink. And we will carry on raising funds for Manorlands.”

Hospice fundraiser, Hayley Ibbotson, said: “We’re incredibly grateful to the staff and customers for their support.”
