A city centre pub has announced when it will be reopening after a dispute between its owners and former tenants forced it shut.

The Edith Cavell, in Tombland, closed at the start of last year but was reopened in July by Brandon Hoult and Adrian Emmerson after a revamp.

However, it suffered another closure in mid-October for work to fix water ingress - with the former managers lashing out at owners Stonegate.

Now with new management moving in, they are planning to open the doors of the mid-19th century building to customers again on Friday, March 1.

Rick Harvey, 47, who will be running the venue, said: "We’re going to turn this into a traditional pub again.

"The city needs more pubs back - it seems like it's gone through the stage of having clubs, cocktail bars and wine bars - but now the old school pub seems to be coming back.

"We want to stick to one thing and do it well, so we won't be doing food, because why compete with what's already in the city.

"However we'll be bringing back old established pub beers, ales, as well as bottled beers people will recognise as well as 12 choices on tap which we'll change up every now and again.

"It's going to be a no-nonsense venue - just somewhere to come drink and have a laugh."

"People realise they're missing traditional pubs" he added.

"This is a great location to be in - along a pub line with the Ribs of Beef and Glasshouse - and I'm really looking forward to opening up soon.

"There's just a deep clean to do and wait for the drinks to turn up - there's not much to do now."
