Punch Drunk Guy

Guy & Madge buy 18th Century boozer to inspire Mayfair drinkers

Location: 41 Farm Street, Mayfair, W1J 5RP

Description: It seems that the richer and more famous you get, the more you can do 'stuff' that you like! And so to Guy Ritchie, hubby to that there Madonna lass...

Apart from being a first-class film-maker, it now seems that Guy wants to turn his hand to the pub trade and start a new career in the real-ale sector.

Always a man who likes a good boozer and a pint, Guy and Madge have big plans for the 18th century The Punchbowl public house which they reportedly acquired for more than 2.5m quid. Guy in particular wants to create a classic English boozer in a cool Mayfair setting - and why not!

And it does not stop there, if a success he wants to roll out more real pubs in fashionable areas of the capital and even a number of new Whisky bar venues around the place. Fine work Guy!

Built in the 1750's, it is the second oldest pub in Mayfair. It was previously owned by close friend Greg Foreman, the son of notorious former London gangster Brown Bread Fred, Freddie Foreman.
