A historic listed pub in Holloway has been sold to a Buckinghamshire firm.
The two-floor Quays pub in Holloway Road was offloaded by independent owner Finbar Holian and will now be run by the Distinct Group.
The 6,500 sq ft Grade II-listed building has a late alcohol licence and can take more than 400 customers.
Chris Bickle, director of licensed leisure at Savills, who brokered the sale, said: “The sale of The Quays was a rare opportunity to acquire a public house in the area that is undergoing a fair amount of investment.”
Distinct Group manager Gareth Leakey vowed: “Following an extensive refurbishment the pub will open all day every day, and late on Fridays and Saturdays.”
