The Vine Pub

These photographs of The Vine Tavern, Hope Place, Greengate Road, were taken by Andy Wade on the 24th July 2012, shortly before the pub closed for good.

Keighley historian Eddie Kelly: “The Vine was purpose built as a beer house by a Holmes Emmott and opened upon completion during late 1863 or early 1864. Taylors Brewery who had probably supplied the beer prior to their ownership subsequently purchased the beer house from Holmes Emmott, conveyed during January 1873. A Full License was granted to the beer house 7th November 1961 following two previous refusals. I have 30th August 2012 as the final day of trading.”

The pub had been acquired by the Timothy Taylor brewery in January 1873 and was closed by the brewers in 2012. The property remained vacant until it was sold by Hayfield Robinson Property Consultants in 2020 for residential or commercial use.
