THE owners of a well known pub between York and Malton are moving on after more than 30 years.

Mother and daughter Susan and Lucy Pilgrim have passed on the White Swan Inn, Thornton-le-Clay, to Simon and Julie Long who currently lease the White Swan at Wighill, near Tadcaster.

Susan said: “We both hope that Simon and Julie and their family will be as happy and successful as we have been here. It has been a great business and a lovely home in a vibrant and welcoming village.”
