There’s a Half Moon rising
A North Yorkshire village has seen its only pub reopened, with support from Black Sheep Brewery, after it was closed a year ago.
The Half Moon, in Sharow, near Ripon, has been refurbished by new licensees Heather and Graham Raine, creating 12 jobs.
Heather and Graham have called upon the area’s popular Black Sheep Brewery to anchor the bar with its Black Sheep Best Bitter and Golden Sheep.
David Croft, senior business development manager at Black Sheep Brewery, said: “Pubs like the Half Moon are very much the heart of their communities, so it is great to see Heather and Graham giving this one a new lease of life.
“As not only their local brewery, but Yorkshire’s, Black Sheep is proud to have been chosen to be at the forefront of their offering.”
Heather Raine said: “The response from the locals has been brilliant and they love the new look we have given the Half Moon – plus the fact that we have placed Black Sheep on the bar as our centrepiece ales.”
