Fossett was seen by the pub’s manager loitering outside in the alleyway moments before the fire was started.
The fire was spotted in its early stages, which prevented further damage to the pub and potential injuries.
The arsonist was then traced through his bank card after CCTV footage showed him buying two drinks at the bar on the night of the arson.
Officers searched his home and found receipts from the Two Brewers for that night, as well as a red leather satchel which matched that seen on the CCTV.
In 2004, Fossett was jailed for eight years for targeting the same venue in an arson attack.
Police said there was no suggestion the attacks were hate crimes, although Fossett’s motivation is not known.
