I received a number of enquiries from residents asking what was happening with the Dyneley Arms pub at the Pool Bank crossroads. I wrote to Samuel Smith Brewery in Tadcaster and have today received a letter from the Area Manager who has advised that unfortunately they have been unable to recruit a management couple to run the pub following the death of one of the previous managers. Until they find someone who can make a success of the pub they are reluctant to reopen it.  

They have asked me whether I know of any couple who would be interested in running the pub and making a success of it and that full training will be given.
