The Derby Brewing Company has taken over its third pub after taking on the Queens Head in Little Eaton.
The firm will share the cost of a £400,000 refurbishment of the property with the pub's owner Everards, according to www.thisisderbyshire.co.uk.
The Derby Brewing Company also runs the former Royal Standard, in Derwent Street, Derby, and the Greyhound, in Friar Gate.
The pub is expected to stock mostly beers from the Derby Brewing Company, with one from Everards.
