It's been a busy week for Gordon Ramsay.
After getting annoyed at an L.A. restaurant for refusing to serve Victoria Beckham a plain salad, posting a return profit for his restaurants, extending his contract at Claridge's for another year and making his film debut, he's now also finally sold off the Devonshire pub.
His company, Gordon Ramsay Holdings (GRH), has sold the Chiswick pub to the team behind the Drapers Arms in Islington. The west London pub, which has been shut for a year, will reopen next month under the ownership of Nick Gibson.
Gibson aims to run a local community pub with a commitment to providing good food and drink in a relaxed and informal setting. The kitchen will be managed by David Philpot, who previously worked with Caprice Holdings and the Soho House Group, while restaurant manager will be Ryan Hayward.
GRH put the lease for the Devonshire up for sale last June after shutting the pub as it failed to meet trading expectations. The site was sold through Restaurant Property, which is currently also marketing GRH's Warrington pub in Maida Vale. The group still runs the Narrow in Lime House.
