Mr Crosbie said: "I've been in the pub trade for a long time now and have worked in many different locals working my way up to management.

"Taking on The Deer's Rest is a new chapter and I have some great ideas for the local, so can't wait to get started."

Jo Rogers from Marston's Inns and Taverns added: "We have taken care to restore the pub, maintaining local touches but updating its style and we hope everyone enjoys the result as much as we do."
