Gordon Ramsay Maida Vale pub on the market for �5.5million
The Warrington is put up for sale by Ramsay’s father-in-law who the chef sacked last year
GORDON Ramsay’s Maida Vale pub, The Warrington, could soon find itself out of the celebrity chef’s hands after it was put up for sale by his father-in-law, Chris Hutcheson.
Mr Hutcheson, former chief executive officer of Gordon Ramsay Holdings, has instructed property agent Restaurant Property to market the pub with a freehold value of �5.5million.
The pub, on Warrington Crescent, is 50 per cent owned by Mr Hutcheson and 50 per cent by Mr Ramsay so the chef would need to approve the sale.
Mr Hutcheson parted ways with his son-in-law in acrimonious circumstances last October after a 12-year partnership.
Reports suggested Mr Hutcheson had been sacked before Mr Ramsay hit out with an open letter detailing his father-in-law’s “manipulation” and “controlling” behaviour.
The Warrington was taken over by the pair in February 2008 and fully restored to feature a dining area and pub. Built in 1857, the pub has many unique characteristics including wooden panels, a mosaic floor and pillared porch. Originally a hotel, there are some accounts the pub was once an upmarket brothel while under the ownership of the Church of England.
