Ossett Brewing Group is opening a new site under its craft beer brand Salt that will bring drinks and pizza to the North Yorkshire town of Malton.

Pizza on the Square is set to open on Friday 24 February and will house a bar and casual dining offer in the Grade II-listed Old Town Hall building, previously occupied by Stew & Oyster.

The Ossett Brewery Group recently acquired all Stew & Oyster sites and has been transforming them to its craft beer brewing arm Salt with this being the last venue to be converted hot on the heels of its Oakwood venue.

Guests will be able to enjoy all of Salt’s core range, including Jute Session IPA and Loom pale ale, as well as regularly rotating guest lines. Four cask ales will be on offer, including Ossett Brewery’s Yorkshire Blonde and White Rat, plus two rotating guest ales.

Something for everyone

Five international lagers and ciders will also be on offer, as well as 10 cocktails and a range of gins, spirits, artisan wines and fresh coffee.

Jamie Lawson, owner and founder of Salt, said: “We always ensure there is something for everyone at any of our bars, and Pizza on the Square will be no different. We are incredibly excited to showcase our renovation to the people of Malton.”

Lawson continued: “We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve done with all the recent openings and this one is destined to be an instant hit with locals.”

Pizza on the Square bar manager Aaron Yates added: “Malton has such a rich history and given its reputation as Yorkshire’s foodie capital, we’re thrilled to bring Pizza on the Square into the mix.”

Unrivalled selection

Yates continued: “On top of an unrivalled selection of locally brewed lagers and ales, guests can expect exceptional pizzas thanks to our tried and tested sourdough recipe.”

The first 50 customers to attend the opening from 12pm on the opening day will be entitled to a free pizza.

The new site will be the business’s first northern bar to incorporate a secret signature sourdough recipe that has been successful in Salt’s London venues in Deptford and Woolwich.

Cask beer brewer Ossett Brewery is celebrating its 25th​ anniversary. The group also operates a portfolio of pubs and bars, including Archie’s Bar & Kitchen in central Leeds, the Riverhead in Marsden, the Flowerpot in Mirfield and more than 25 other venues.
