Jordan said: "I’m really excited for the Emmott’s next chapter. I have grown up in Laneshaw Bridge, so it feels great being able to take over a pub that I know so many locals love. It’s not just a pub, it’s a hub for our local community.

"My aim is to deliver extraordinary food, a comfy cosy atmosphere, where locals and non-locals love to come and eat. We will be using local suppliers for both food and drinks, to ensure we have delicious and fresh produce. Being Ideally located, it’s the perfect spot for family and friends to relax in.

"We can’t wait to welcome everyone back and see our guests’ reactions over the coming weeks."
