A PUB with a troubled past has been sold.
The Marsh House, Westbourne Road, was sold earlier this month by Punch Taverns to an unknown buyer.
Last week metal sheets were removed from the windows to reveal new panes.
Neither Punch Taverns nor estate agents Fleurets would comment on who the pub had been sold to.
The Marsh House was the scene of a series of violent incidents in the past.
Police closed the Westbourne Road pub on October 1, 2006, after a 22-year-old man was shot and injured.
In another incident a man walked in carrying a 3ft samurai sword.
A new manager took over in the spring of 2007, but left the business after little more than a year.
