The Trustcott Arms in Maida Vale is to re-open as a restaurant.

The pub on Shirland Road will be relaunched under a different name in February 2018.

It has been bought by Holborn Leisure, a company established by James McCulloch who owns Scandinavian restaurant, The Harcourt, in Marylebone.

Mr McCulloch has employed Henry Harris, the former chef of French eaterie Racine, to oversee the re-opening.

The gastropub was forced to close last year due to rent hikes. It was purchased for £5m by private equity firm Ducalian Capital.

The new Trustcott Arms will serve food in the ground-floor space amid the original bar fittings, with a first-floor dining room serving a more developed menu.

The pub, which was famous for serving traditional Sunday roast, will still be serving these traditional dishes.

The reopened restaurant, will announce its new name in November before opening its doors.
