Restoration plan for historic Malton pub
8:10am Tuesday 24th September 2013 in News
AN historic pub in Malton could be restored.
The Green Man, in Market Street, includes neighbouring premises known as The Fleece pub, with the two buildings trading as a hotel after being amalgamated in 1977.
The Fitzwilliam Malton Estate is now intending to split the site into two and market them as separate business opportunities.
The Fleece site, which includes newly recreated pub or bar space on the ground floor as well as three bedrooms and seven letting rooms on upper floors, is being marketed by Fleurets.
Tobias Burckhardt, the estate’s surveyor, said: “It is a well-loved building in the town centre, and the estate’s plan to offer The Fleece and The Green Man as separate entities is in keeping with the promotion of Malton as Yorkshire’s food capital.”
The Green Man is believed to date back to the 18th century and has been associated with the Tate-Smith family, who developed their wholesale drinks business there from the 1870s, while the Sundella lemonade brand’s roots can also be traced back to the pub.
The Fleece’s origins are thought to be from the 15th Century, Simon Hall, Fleurets spokesman, said: “It offers a rare opportunity to create a high-quality public house in a central position in a North Yorkshire market town, and there is ample scope for a flagship operation.”
