Ex-footballer and former England captain David Beckham is about to become the proud new owner of a west London boozer.
The Walmer Castle in Notting Hill is set to be bought by power couple David Beckham and… none other than film director Guy Ritchie. The pub set them back £3 million and Becks supposedly has plans to give it a ‘Soho House’-style makeover. Lucky he has the cash to splash, eh? [Photo by @renataborka]
London isn’t short of pubs and bars that are owned by stars, but Becks is new to the game. Ritchie, however, already owns the Lukin pub in Fitzrovia, which will be renamed the Lore of the Land when it reopens. He also runs the Gritchie Brewing Company from his farm in Wiltshire and, rumour has it, his beers will be on tap at The Walmer Castle pretty soon. (Wouldn’t mind a pint of Becks though, if you know what I mean…)
You’ll find The Walmer Castle at 58 Ledbury Road, Notting Hill, W11 2AJ.
