“It’s fantastic news,” said Brown Bear director Mark Dodds. “It’s taken us a year to get to this point.”

The pub reopened last November after a year-long closure, the property having been bought by local businessman Frank Flannigan.

It is now run as a community-based social enterprise, led by Mark Dodds, a long-standing licensee and publican himself.
