The Tim Bobbin closed at the start of 2020, just before the pandemic hit and saw hospitality become one of its biggest casualties.

And since then Tadcaster based Samuel Smiths Brewery, which owns the landmark watering hole in Padiham Road, has been on the look-out for someone to run the place so the doors can re-open.

A spokesman for the brewery said today: "The role is for a live in manager, ideally a couple, and we provide full training, including licensing exams."
