David Beckham & Guy Ritchie buck pub trade downturn by buying £3m West London pub

David Beckham

Ex-football star David Beckham is set to become proud owner of a London pub.

Beckham, 43 is buying the Walmer Castle, in Notting Hill, near his family home in Holland Park.

And he has a team-mate in the venture, his good friend the film director Guy Ritchie.

They’ve paid £3 million for the pub and Beckham plans to give it a ‘Soho House’-style makeover.

A source close to Beckham told the Daily Mail: ‘He can’t wait to get stuck into making it just as he wants it.’

Ritchie already owns the Lukin pub in Fitzrovia and runs the Gritchie Brewing Company from his farm in Wiltshire. His beers are expected to be on tap soon at the Walmer. Cheers!
