A WEAVERTHORPE pub has been sold to new owners.

The Blue Bell Inn, which includes a bar and restaurant, plus seven ensuite letting rooms, had been owned by Jarrod and Leanne Fisher since 2000.

They said: “It’s been a pleasure to have owned The Blue Bell for the last 18 years and we would like to thank everyone who has been involved in making our time there as enjoyable as it was.”

The Blue Bell has been acquired by husband and wife team, Karl and Julia Norton.

“This is a really exciting new venture for us as a family,” they said. “We look forward to welcoming customers, old and new.”
