A renovated Scarborough pub was officially relaunched at this week’s Great Yorkshire Show.
HQ Hospitality, owned by Nick and Sandra Thomas of Scarborough-based entertainments company Qdos, launched its latest venture, The Plough in Scalby, with the help of Welcome to Yorkshire chief executive Sir Gary Verity.
The Plough joins The Mayfield and Copper Horse in Seamer and the Yew Tree Cafe in the company’s portfolio.
A spokesman for HQ Hospitality said: “The Plough brings together North and East Yorkshire in a cross-county business collaboration with East Yorkshire chef/proprietor James Mackenzie of the renowned Pipe and Glass in South Dalton.
“James is the creative genius behind The Plough’s menu, which features Yorkshire-style tapas as well as focusing on locally sourced Yorkshire and British produce and dishes.” The major restoration and refurbishment work at the pub was undertaken by local companies.
The building work was don by Scarborough’s IR Harrison Building Contractors and the interior design was created by Malton-based Rachel McLane, whose work includes The Star Inn The City in York and The Devonshire Arms at Bolton Abbey.
The HQ spokesman added: “The Plough still retains its original character and charm whilst combining luxury and comfort in modern surroundings.”
On Tuesday Sir Gary helped Lesley Downey from HQ Hospitality officially launch the business at the Harrogate Showground.
