A NEW micropub could be set to open in Scarborough.

Katrice Rowe has applied to the borough council to open the small bar in a former charity shop at 7 Northway, opposite the Stephen Joseph Theatre. Her application states that the bar would be open from noon until midnight, seven days a week.

The application adds: “Small premises can be successful, by specialising in offering products from smaller, craft-based suppliers and appealing on the basis of taste and interest, rather than price.

“Socially, creating a following of regulars, will to some extent restore their local identity.”

The pub would sell craft beers, lagers, ciders and spirits with an emphasis on “small breweries and distilleries. The plans are out to consultation.
