Young’s Brewery said it would begin refurbishing the pub, which has sat empty for three weeks, on October 16.

Customers raised concerns last week after a scribbled sign appeared in the pub window saying: “Pub now closed until further notice.”

A spokeswoman for the brewery said the pub in Dartmouth Park Hill, Tufnell Park, will reopen managed by Young’s pub company rather than by tenants as in the past.

She added: “Young’s take great pride in their rich and long-standing heritage, something that Lord Palmerston too packs in abundance.

“From October 16, the pub will undergo a refurbishment, re-opening early November, and will serve fresh, seasonal, British food sourced from around the south east of England, alongside a range of premium drinks, from craft ales and beers to quality spirits.”

She added: “We look forward to welcoming locals once again, ensuring the Lord Palmerston is a pub for the whole community to enjoy.”
