Taylor’s on the Green opens after significant investment and name change in time for Keighley’s Yorkshire Day festivities

Timothy Taylor’s held a VIP launch evening on Thursday 28th July for the newly refurbished Taylor’s on the Green with the Keighley Deputy Mayor, Cllr. John Kirby and his consort Cllr. Julie
Adams in attendance. After a trial evening on Saturday, the pub reopened to the public on Monday 1st August to celebrate the Yorkshire Day celebrations being held in Keighley.

The £300,000 refurbishment has been very well received by visitors who have experienced it so far. Interior design was carried out by Bowman Riley in Skipton and RN Wooler builders in
Keighley delivered the building works, with many other local suppliers contributing to aspects of the renovation.

The outlet has been renamed from the Lord Rodney to Taylor’s on the Green to reflect its position in the town and its close relationship to the Keighley-based brewery and its 164-year history in Keighley (it was founded on Cook Lane Keighley in 1858 before moving to its current Knowle Spring site in 1863).

Paul Turner, Estate Operations Director for the brewery commented: ‘’We have recruited a fantastic staff team and are excited to show off the stunning refurbishment to our previous regulars and new visitors who can enjoy our all-day food and drink offer whilst enjoying the ambience and learning more about Timothy Taylor’s history and heritage. We also have an onsite brewery shop. ‘’

Notes to editors:

Given the impracticalities of having a tap room at the brewery to host guests and customers, Taylor’s feel it is vital to have one of its pubs in Keighley even more closely aligned with the brewery. This alignment will enable visitors to Taylor’s on the Green to not only sample a wide range of Taylor’s beers but to also learn about Taylor’s history and heritage. All of this alongside an all-day food offer. Taylor’s anticipate this being a welcome addition to the town’s leisure offer and as popular with the local population as it is with visitors. The outlet will be managed directly by
Timothy Taylor’s.

The Lord Rodney is on the site of Keighley’s oldest pub – The Olde Red Lion. It was re-named The Lord Rodney following his famous victory over the Spanish Fleet in 1780.
