Rate and rent rises are resulting in a fair few casualties in the restaurant world at the moment. Late last year we had the very unwelcome news that the Truscott Arms was closing down, another victim to unwelcome rent rises. But now there's news that it's rising from the ashes - and staying as a pub too.
It's been bought by Ducalian Capital and they say that the floor and garden will remain a pub with "contemporary European food" on offer (they've yet to announce a chef). Upstairs there will be a dedicated restaurant (pic of what it used to look like above) and a members' lounge too.
We'll have lots more news about what to expect from the place in the coming months.
