New owners, Stonegate Pub Company, say it is welcoming the seaside pub to its quirky portfolio.

The takeover will bring 25 new jobs and retain the jobs of former staff.

Pub manager Andy Moore, said: "It’s been a crazy few weeks and local interest has been amazing.

"The renovation is astounding – an urban, artisan feel with all the facilities to make us the home for sports, al fresco dining, relaxation or party, and music.

"The investment is great for Deal with a positive contribution to the local economy that we hope will benefit other businesses.

"The return to live and local music, comedy and jazz with a food and drink offer aimed at a wide customer base is destined to create a real feel good factor locally."

The pub will offer a food menu from Sicilian inspired pizzas; British and Mediterranean tapas from beef and horseradish bites to Iberico ham croqetas, sticky wings and nachos.

Before closing as the Hole in the Roof, the pub was issued with a noise abatement notice in November 2016.

It followed complaints from residents about noise in the pub dating back to 2014.
