A Cornish village pub has been given a new lease of life during the busy tourist season.
The Grade II listed Duke of Leeds at Leedstown, near Hayle has been bought by new owner Anthony Sheppard.
The premises were on the market with Exeter licensed property specialists Stonesmith.
Mr Sheppard has introduced a new food menu, reinstated the letting rooms and is planning monthly theme nights to boost trade.
Mike Phillips, director of Stonesmith who handled the sale sad: “The sale of The Duke of Leeds created a great deal of interest, with multiple offers being received for the business. We are delighted that Anthony has settled into the trade and we wish him every success for the future.”
Mr Sheppard said he had been looking for a while for the right property and even considered a business abroad before finding The Duke of Leeds.
Chef Adam Jameson-stone, who previously worked at the pub 10 years ago, has been employed to create a full menu.
Mr Sheppard is looking to build on the pool teams and in November there is a pool competition with a £250 1st prize. He is also bringing back a winter quiz night and occasional live music evenings.
