Pub set to reopen after being taken back on by owners

Friars Head, Akebar.

A Wensleydale pub and restaurant is set to reopen after being taken back on by its owners.

The Friars Head at Akebar will open from March 1.

After being managed by tenants in recent years, the venue is to be operated in-house by Akebar Park, which also runs the holiday park.

Akebar Park director Jack Reynard said: “We’re so excited to have the Friars Head back under our management after four years of leasing the venue out.

“We have got a great team and chef in place all ready to go for our opening on March 1.”

Jack said the pub would be offering “home cooked fresh food and a great selection of ales and wine”.

“Our crazy golf course next to the beer garden is free to use,” he added.
