A pub dating back to the 15th century is set to reopen next month under new ownership.

The White Lodge in Attleborough will be the next pub to open as part of Snug Hospitality, a Norfolk-based business focused on breathing new life into local watering holes.

The pub is closed while it searches for a new chef and front-of-house team before reopening in October.

Snug Hospitality plans on hosting events at the "food-led" site and will announce more on the pub's social media pages in the coming weeks.

Daniel Pratt, owner of Snug Hospitality, said: "The White Lodge has always been known as a food-led business, so we're searching for a chef to fit the location and create a great menu.

"We're not making too many changes to the interior or the exterior as we know that the location and building speaks for itself."

Previous landlords Ben and Thom Sleath passed over ownership on September 8 and expressed their "gratitude to the staff, customers and suppliers" during their time at the local.

Snug Hospitality is also the operator of The Crown at Trunch, The Chequers in Hainford, The Freemasons Arms in Norwich, The White Swan in Gressenhall and The Kings Head in Cromer.
