Jug and Jester in Leamington has closed and its new owner will reopen it under a
The pub in Bath Street was owned by the JD Wetherspoon chain but in February independent operator Stonegate announced it had bought the business.
Stonegate will spend £400,000 to renovate the premises before reopening it on Monday May 22 under a different name, which it has yet to announce.
Stonegate’s chief executive Simon Longbottom said: “We have a strong track record in buying and investing in pubs – and the teams within them – enhancing the offer, and enabling them to thrive under our ownership.
“We are big believers in securing the future of high street and community pubs.
“In the meantime it’s a huge welcome to the pub’s team and loyal customers whom we look forward in continuing to serve.”
