The Black Swan, which is situated at the junction of Queen Street and Elders Street, has a new owner.

It is expected to open next month following ‘extensive refurbishment’ work.

The pub was sold for an undisclosed figure off an asking price of £150,000.

The new owner of the premises is Rodgers Leisure.

The Selby-based company is a family owned concern with a portfolio of five traditional bars, together with other hospitality business and residential investments.

Joe Rodgers said: “The Black Swan will reopen to the public in October after an extensive refurbishment.

“By April 2021 we hope to have added six en-suite letting bedrooms, together with a two-bedroom holiday apartment.”

Nick Thomas of Leisure Property Specialists Fleurets, which brokered the sale, said: “I am sure that customers will enjoy the refurbished facilities and the creation of letting accommodation will, no doubt, benefit from the increasing numbers of people enjoying staycations in Scarborough.”
