RESIDENTS have finally been given the chance to see inside the transformed former town hall in Malton.

The building, which has stood empty for several years, reopened as the bar and restaurant, Stew & Oyster Ltd on Wednesday.

Malton is the sixth and latest site for the Stew & Oyster team, and serves regional craft beers and ales, alongside a casual dining-menu.

Gemma Welsh, from Stew & Oyster, said: “We aim to offer a proper Yorkshire welcome in a beautiful, central location.

“We would like to thank everyone for their fantastic, warm welcome in the last few days,”
