'We're excited to get started and begin building relationships with the locals and developing our food offering. For us, classic and beautifully-cooked dishes will be the key to our success.'

The pub, on the main Lynn Road, is rated 4 out of 5 in 72 reviews on the Tripadvisor website, with 51pc rating its food 'excellent'.
