Mickey calls time on running Keighley pub

Keighley News: Mickey Thompson Mickey Thompson

Landlord Mickey Thompson will this Sunday bid goodbye to the Great Northern after running it for just 12 months.

TV actor and entrepreneur Mickey said he was unable to make the Ingrow pub pay despite introducing new activities and attractions.

He reckons he has lost £8,000 since taking over the Halifax Road hostelry, following the retirement of long-time landlords.

Mr Thompson, 43, said: “Three people have expressed an interest in running the Great Northern. I will be jobless and homeless on Monday. I’ve worked hard for 12 months but I’ve made so many losses. It’s just not viable to run a pub under these conditions.”

Mr Thompson has appeared as an extra in many films and TV series, as well as acting in dramas including Coronation Street. He said he would now return to acting, as well as running his agency Worth Valley Talent.

A spokesman for Admiral Taverns, which owns the Great Northern, said it would open as normal next week despite Mr Thompson leaving.
