The pub was relaunched under a new landlady in November 2017, after it shut down under its previous owner in July that year.

But now it appears to have closed after 10 months of trading.

A spokesperson for The Ei Publican Partnership - formerly known as Enterprise Inns, which owns the King David, said: “We can confirm that the King David, Northampton is currently shut. We would like to reassure the local community that we plan to reopen the site as soon as possible.”
