Pub firm Marston's Premium Bars and Restaurants division has bought three Pointing Dog pubs for an undisclosed sum.
The three sites, in Sheffield, Bakewell and Cheadle, will be operated by the Revere pub company, which is part of the Premium Bars and Restaurants arm alongside Pitcher & Piano.
Colin Sadler, managing director of Revere said: "We are delighted to welcome the Pointing Dog teams, and believe the ethos and strength of their retail offer will sit well with our independently spirited business.
"We are particularly impressed with the passion and commitment of the Pointing Dog team, and are delighted that the management and staff of the bars and restaurants will be transferring with the business."
