The co-founder of Mint Group, which runs several bars in London, has bought his own local in Ross-shire in Scotland.
Alex Rutherford plans to refurbish the Munlochy Arms in the village of Munlochy after buying the site from Santander's corporate banking division for an undisclosed sum.
Rutherford was reported on the BBC as saying: "I am delighted to be taking over The Munlochy Arms.
"It's a brilliantly located pub, and I think it has tons of potential, so I'm looking forward to giving the locals an establishment to be proud of."
Rutherford co-founded the Mint Group in 2001 with his long-term business partner Olly Bengough.
Among the venues it owns and runs are Infernos in Clapham, the Elk Bar in Fulham Broadway, and Bison and Bird, also in Clapham.
