The Tapp on the Tutt in Boroughbridge reported a ‘fantastic’ and ‘better than expected’ festive season with a new look and name. The pub was previously the Three Horseshoes until Simon Wade bought the Grade 2-listed building, refurbished it, and changed its name. Simon’s other venues, the Grantham Arms and the Fox and Hounds in Langthorpe, also thrived during the pandemic with a focus on home deliveries. Simon expanded the Grantham Arms with more bedrooms and an outdoor area, and later gained the freehold of the Three Horseshoes, which he transformed and renamed to reflect the Tutt river nearby. The pub offers food and a variety of beers, and has been well-received by residents. Simon now plans to open a microbrewery in the pub’s cellar, citing the town’s strong community feel.
