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.
