The current landlord Scott Westlake worked at The Myrtle Tavern from the age of 14 to 21 and he took over management of the pub in 2011, subsequently taking on the business himself in 2015.

In 2017 The Myrtle was lovingly refurbished at a cost of £90,000 – this included internal repairs and the addition of a very popular play area alongside the well tended beer garden.

With the support of Rob Vallance (now proprietor of Three Cottages Cafe in Meanwood Park) food was introduced and in October 2021 The Myrtle invested a further £80,000 in a brand new kitchen, enabling the Myrtle to widen its food repertoire and to offer a bespoke catering service as well as its famed Sunday lunches.

When Covid 19 came along the Myrtle stayed at the heart of the community, keeping in touch with its customers through social media and providing welcome entertainment with live shows and quizzes on Facebook. We also provided practical help where needed (such as delivering toilet rolls and other necessities to the vulnerable in our community) and kept in touch with people living alone so they didn’t feel isolated.


We were delighted to welcome our customers back as things returned to normal and the outside only rule led to the addition of our lovingly decorated marquee which has now been replaced by our stunning oak lodge. The lodge is a very popular venue, with panoramic views and is regulary booked for private parties.

The Myrtle has grown into a true community pub for all ages and we are proud to be at the heart of Meanwood.
